About the song
This is the first song I ever wrote that had lyrics. Up to this point, I had been writing primarily instrumentals. One day, I said to myself, "what would happen if I tried to write something with lyrics?" This was the result.

Unlike some of my other songs, I didn't have anyone particularly in mind when I wrote this. However, I was also in the midst of a dry spell (if you know what I mean). I was still very young and naïve at the time. I went with the premise of, "I want to ask this girl out, but don't know how."

Of course, most young men who don't have the balls to ask a girl out have a lot of stuff going through their heads. This is what tended to go through mine.

Lyrics
IF SHE ONLY KNEW
Words and music by Ray Kim

Verse 1:
I've been holding back too long...
Got this feeling deep inside of me...
Not much time before she's gone...
If I just had the words to make her see...

Wanna tell her so bad, but something keeps holding me back...
Maybe if I wait for tomorrow...

Chorus:
When she looks into my eyes, will she realize...?
When I try to take her hand, will she understand...?
When I've got something to say, will she look away...?
When I hold her in my arms, will she be alarmed...?

I knew if my words could just get through...
If she only knew...

Verse 2:
I've been watching her so long...
Like a dream, she seems so far away...
Her words are the sweetest song,
Helping me to see the light of day...

Didn't wanna believe that she was for real, so young and true...
Now it looks like I've fallen for her...

Chorus:
When she looks into my eyes, will she realize...?
When I try to take her hand, will she understand...?
When I've got something to say, will she look away...?
When I hold her in my arms, will she be alarmed...?

So who will be there for her to turn to...?
If she only knew...

Bridge:
(instrumental ad lib)

If she only knew...

Can't wait any longer, she's gotta know she's on my mind...
Tell her that I don't wanna lose her...

Chorus:
When she looks into my eyes, will she realize...?
When I try to take her hand, will she understand...?
When I've got something to say, will she look away...?
When I hold her in my arms, will she be alarmed...?

I'm due, wanna tell her, "I love you..."
If she only knew...
