Rock Ballad of the Week: Yes “If You Only Knew”

I can lift you with my heart
Give you meaning every day
Cannot live without your truth

And be the true me
To be the true you
Pick the flowers from your floor
Put them in your arms for you my love
Realize my life and more

Say you will ‘n’ then
Take me home
Make me clear
It feels so much better
Take me home
To this heart of hearts

If only you knew
You caught me when I was falling
Yes you caught me when I was falling fast

And only you knew
You answered me when I was calling you
You saw me when I was dreaming you
Into my life

Everyone who looks at you
Sees the loving in your every move
You’re the healing of the soul

To be the true you
To be the true me
I will be your strength all time
Ever wishing you this love and more
Forever be your guiding song

Say you will and then
Take me home
Make me clear
To feel so much better
In this life
In your heart of hearts

If only you knew
How you caught me when I was falling
Yes you caught me when I was falling fast

And only you knew
You answered me when I was calling you
You saw me when I was dreaming you
Into my life

When I feel the hurt in so many peoples’ lives
I take a deep breath and think of your smile your eyes
When I hear the sadness of this earth time
Then I take a deep breath and know that you understand
That you understand

And only you knew
How you caught me when I was falling fast
Caught me when I was falling fast
If only you knew
How you answered me when I was calling you
You saw me when I was dreaming you

If only you knew
Yes you caught me when I was falling fast
You caught me when I was falling
Into your life
