if you only knew lyrics – shinedown

if you only knew
i’m hanging by a thread
the web i spin for you
if you only knew
i’d sacrifice my beating
heart before i’d lose you
i still hold onto the letters
you returned
i swear i’ve lived and learned

[chorus]
it’s 4:03 and i can’t sleep
without you next to me i
toss and turn like the sea
if i drown tonight, bring me
back to life
breathe your breath in me
the only thing that i still believe
in is you, if you only knew

if you only knew
how many times i counted
all the words that went wrong
if you only knew
how i refuse to let you go,
even when you’re gone
i don’t regret any days i
spent, nights we shared,
or letters that i sent

[chorus]
it’s 4:03 and i can’t sleep
without you next to me i
toss and turn like the sea
if i drown tonight, bring me
back to life
breathe your breath in me
the only thing that i still believe
in is you, if you only knew
if you only knew

if you only knew
i still hold onto the letters
you returned
you help me live and learn

[chorus]
it’s 4:03 and i can’t sleep
without you next to me i
toss and turn like the sea
if i drown tonight, bring me
back to life
breathe your breath in me
the only thing that i still believe
in is you, believe in is you
i still believe in you
oh, if you only knew
