If You Only Knew
Recorded by Reba McEntire
Written by Jane Mariash and Diana Rae

C F G7 C
So here you are again standing at my door
F G7
You know I'd understand well that's what friends are for
What's he done this time what did he say
To make you so darn mad that you're running away
F G7
Now you say you want to be like me independent and free

But if you only knew what a single girl goes through
The long working days and the lonely nights
And the empty I love yous
Oh if you only knew what it's like to be alone
G7 C
You'd put your anger down turn around and go back home

F G7 C
My life looks good to you I'm always in control
F G7
No one to answer to but no one there to hold
You see in my eyes you are the lucky one
With loving arms that you can lean upon
And I'd give anything I could to say
What you're throwing away

repeat #2

G7 F C
I know it's hard to face that love ain't perfect everyday
F G7
But I know a hundred girls who would gladly take your place

repeat #2

F G7
You'd put your anger down turn around
C G7 C
And go back home if you only knew
