If You Only Knew Lyrics

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 lose you
I still hold onto the letters
You returned
I swear I've lived and learned

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 wen't 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

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
I still hold onto the letters
You returned
You help me live and learn

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

"Sin With a Grin"

Take a good look at agony
Forced, dead, pass down
Time release
I'm inspired to find the lie
Blackless X on the back
Of a soulfull man
I've got way's you understand
Look left, look right, but I'm
Behind you
I never noticed, until I focused
On everything you did, you said,
You lit the fuse inside my head

Thank you for reminding me
Of what I have seeked inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
All them under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
The sin with a grin

Hey, men
Standing on a twisted 2x4
Built your house, but forgot
To lock the door
I'm inside with two black eyes
I have not one shred of sympathy
I have no use for apologies
I'm inspired to find the lie
I never noticed, until I focused
On everything you did, you said,
You lit the fuse inside my head

Thank you for reminding me
Of what I have seeked inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
All them under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
The sin with a grin

Thank you for reminding me
Of what I have seeked inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
All them under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me -

Of what I have seeked inside
Thank you for the venom, did
You think it would paralyze?
These scars I scratch, I tear
All them under my skin
Where you've always been
Thank you for reminding me,
The sin with a grin

This is probably my second favorite Shinedown song, next to Heroes. It should really be the opening song of a vampire or fairy romance anime (I vote vampire, who's with me?). LP is still the best band
