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 went 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 will only knew

I still hold onto the letters you returned
You helped 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
