If You Only...
by   Anonymous

If you only gave me the time,
if you only gave me a chance,
I'd show you how much I care,
I'd make our love really last.

But deep down inside I know 
the one you want 
is the one that hurt you, 
the one that broke your heart.

Maybe you're confused, 
frustrated, too,
about the one to choose, 
but it's obvious for you. 

Maybe you're afraid
to be in love again, 
maybe you don't want 
what happened back then. 

But all I have for you 
in my heart is love. 
The fighting, the screaming,
the cursing? None of the above.

Why can't you see it, 
why can't you feel it? 
Just look into my eyes
and tell me you believe it. 

The love I have for you 
is so honest and true,
but I only wish I knew 
why you do those things you do. 

Why do you shut me down, 
why do you turn me away? 
As much as I love you 
I can't go through this each day.
I'll never make you cry, 
I'll never leave your side, 
I'll always be there 
to wipe that teardrop from your eye.

Just give me the chance 
and I'll make your dreams come true, 
let me be the one 
to make your love feel true.

Every moment we share
I'll try to show you how much I care, 
because deep down inside 
I'm really nothing if you're not there.
