If You Only Knew
All the things that we've been through Darling, you should understand me like I understand you Honey, I know the difference between right and wrong I ain't gone do nothing to upset our happy home You don't get so excited when I come home a little late at night Oh we act like children when we argue fuss and fight If you don't know me by now (If you don't) You will never (You'll never, never know me) Never know me If you don't know me by now (If you don't) You will never (You'll never, never know me) Never know me Oh, we all got our own funny moods Honey, I've got mine and you got yours too Just trust in me like I trust in you As long as we been together That should be so easy to do Oh you better get yourself together Or we might as well say goodbye, bye, bye, bye What good is a love affair if we can't see eye to eye If you don't know me by now (You'll never, you'll never, you ain't gonna know me) Never know me If you don't know me by now (If you don't know me) You will never (You'll never, never know me) Never know me Whoa baby, I thought you Oh I thought you knew me by now But you don't, oh baby, I know you I thought you knew me by now but you don't Ha, ha, ha Yeah, I like to do one of those ha, ha Sometimes you think you all knowing about them I think it's kinda like your ego gets in the way And you take for granted, somebody just knows What you're all about my dear and they just don't Awe shucks, I'm a try to talk to you suga You break your back and you break your legs And you break your faith Trying to make these people know you in life But somehow, they just don't want to try to So you say to yourself, "Is it something I said? Is it something I done, is it the way I look? Is it the way my clothes come unfasten?" And if that turns you off baby Then you ain't worth me anyway Screams so you fasten your clothes You check your speech and you check you drag And everything else, your face And you find out you're still in trouble So then you say to yourself, "Self is it worth it?" Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, no 'Cause it's been ten long years This is the situation that I'm talkin' about Ten long years and if you don't know me I'm not try to prove myself no more You will never, never, never know me You'll go on, you'll go on and find yourself, someone else Because if you think your lonely now Wait until tonight comes 'Cause I'll be somewhere, somewhere, somewhere I ain't gonna stop and try to prove myself to you Because you ain't gonna, you ain't gonna You ain't gonna, know me Know, know, know, know, know Know, know, know, know, know
