lyrics

Girl, I'm green with envy.
Jealous of the California sun.
Cuz it's kissing every inch of you.
While I sit alone and in the dark.

If only you knew.
If only you knew...

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

If only you knew...

I hope that my persistence closes the distance a couple thousand miles.
I can picture your Mona Lisa smile.

I'd walk through the soles of my shoes, coast to coast to catch a glimpse of you during sunset on the Pacific Ocean edge.

If only you knew,
if only you knew...

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

My thoughts are running circles through my mind.
You make it easy,
You opened my weary eyes.
I never saw this coming.
I never saw this coming.
I hope that I say something.

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two.

I could lie, but baby we both know better.
If I head out west, you know it's not for the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want this too.

If only you knew what I was hiding behind this smile,
Would it be enough to make you stay here a while?
Sharing blankets and pillow talk for two. Oh, I'm living a lie and baby, it's oh so clever. When I head out west, it's for the sun and the weather.
You'd make this easy and tell me you want me too, if only you knew.
