“If I Knew” Lyrics

If I knew
What was bothering you
I would run to your side
I don’t know why
I would just die
If you left me

Can’t you see
What you’re doing to me?
Are you playin’ a game?
Always the same
Am I to blame?
Or is anyone?

I don’t want to settle down
With any other girl but you
So I’m just going to wait around
’Til you decide what you’re gonna do
(Whoa, whoa)

Can’t you see
What you’re doing to me?
Are you playin’ a game?
Always the same
Am I to blame?
Or is anyone? (Anyone, anyone)

I don’t want to settle down
With any other girl but you
So I’m just going to wait around
’Til you decide what you’re gonna do
(Whoa, whoa)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
(Na-na naa, na na na)
Tell me what you’re going to do
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Baby, baby, baby
Tell me what you’re going to do
(Whoa, whoa)
Baby, baby, baby
Oh baby, oh baby
I can’t live without you
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
If I knew
What was bothering you
(Oh whoa, yeah)
If I knew
What was bothering you
If I knew
What was bothering you
If I knew
