about

Originally named "Arbalou," after the town in Morocco. No longer unesoteric enough to scrub such a reference, FYI.

lyrics

If you knew that people tend to move in patterns
Then maybe you could see why it's so good
That I'm with you.
But then, that really doesn't matter,
Cause I want out and you want out
And everytime I close my eyes
You look like someone else.
And lately I'm just not myself
Would you agree that life's not really what you make it,
But rather, what is made?
And though I see something special in your eyes, they seem so vacant
And I am afraid that I just can't take it that much longer,
But I really don't know why
Oh baby let your conscience die
Oh if you only knew I had everything I wanted
If you only knew I have everything I need yeah
If you only knew I need everything I've got
Then you'd know all I want is you
So take your oath... I don't want it, you can keep it
Play it for the world.
But keep it mind that you can never learn my secrets
Because you're just a little girl
Oh I've got problems,
You've got problems
And we've got problems, too.
But I can't get away from you.
Oh if you knew that there's an end to every story
Then there'd be nothing left to say
And I think you do, but you stop reading everytime the plot gets boring
And pick it up another day.
Oh there's no sense in telling you
That I have got my doubts
Cause that's what love is all about.
Oh If you only knew that I don't know what I've got yeah
If you only knew that I don't know what to do
If you only knew I want everything I can't have
Then you'd know all I want is you
If I knew that things wouldn't change
And if I knew that it sounds so strange
To hear everything that I always say
In words so sweet and true
Oh if I only knew
Then I would run away from you
But if you only knew I have all I've ever wanted
And if you only knew I have everything I need yeah
If you only knew I have all I've ever wanted
Then you'd know all I need is you
