IF YOU COULD ONLY SEE Lyrics - Tonic

Review The Song (18)



If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Well you got your reasons
And you got your lies
And you got your manipulations
They cut me down to size

Sayin' you love but you don't
You give your love but you won't

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do

If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Seems the road less traveled
Show's happiness unraveled
And you got to take a little dirt
To keep what you love
That's what you gotta do

Sayin' you love but you don't
You give your love but you won't
You're stretching out your arms to something that's just not there
sayin you love where you stand
Give you heart when you can


If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

Sayin' you love but you don't
You give your love but you won't
Sayin' you love where you stand
Give your heart when you can

If you could only see the way she loves me
Then maybe you would understand
Why I feel this way about our love
And what I must do
If you could only see how blue her eyes can be when she says
When she says she loves me

If You Could Only See | Reviewer: Matt | 10/13/09

Actually this song is about when the lead singer was about to be married and his mother disapproved because she believed it wasn't true love. So he's actually explaining to his mother why he loves her, and why he feels the way he feels about her. Though they got divorced soon after, so I guess the mother was right haha.

You can interpret this song anyway you want to, that's what music is about.



If You Could Only See inter[retation | Reviewer: Derrick | 7/22/09

I think i know wat its about...its about a guy who is with a girl who treats him like shit but he dont wanna let her go...i think these lyrics in particular say in perfectly..

"And you got to take a little dirt
To keep what you love
That's what you gotta do"

Sayin' you love but you don't
You give your love but you won't
You're stretching out your arms to something that's just not there



Interpret the lyrics any way you like | Reviewer: tracie | 2/26/09

I agree with emma's response. she has spoken to the singer about the lyrics so therefore she knows from the singer what the song is really about. Egon 1's response kind of makes me go "What? That doesn't even make sense". Their interpretion is kind of far out there. But we all have our own interpretions of the lyrics to the song- right or wrong with what the singer wrote it about. I never really thought that much of the interpretion or situation with the story of the lyrics. But for everyone, feel free to interpret it any way you like.



The singer told me... | Reviewer: emma | 3/28/08

OK, guys...having met and spoke to Emerson many years back...the song was written to his mother about the woman he wanted to marry. His mum didn't approve...even refused to come to the wedding. Turned out she was right and they divorced shortly after.



It´s quite clear... | Reviewer: Egon_1 | 2/7/08

This song is about a man that speaks to his girlfriends EX that just can´t let her go! Her Ex is his ex-best friend... Thats why he tries to explain to him that it´s real between them and that she loves him and NOT her ex. Actually.. The Ex was unfaithful and has changed his mind and want her back but she´s not interested. She´s happy with her new love and her Ex can´t accept that.. Sad story... But love will prevail and to be unfaithful is the worst case of betrayal.
-*I REALLY DO LOVE HER MORE THAN THE AIR I BREATHE, SHE ROCKS MY WORLD*-



A complicated relationship | Reviewer: Steve | 11/6/07

I agree with Renee's post; I think it's fairly certain that this song is about a man in a relationship that's not going well.
When he says "you", he's probably talking to his current girlfriend who "lies" and "manipulates" him to "cut him down to size". She also only gives her love to him "when she can".
While when he refers to "she", he's speaking of someone else who does not just say that she loves him, but genuinely means it. (Or at least he thinks so.)
The "what I must do" is probably just breaking up with her.
Of course I may be wrong, but I believe that it's not a far-cry from what Tonic was going for.



I see this song differently... | Reviewer: Renee | 11/2/07

I heard this song a million times but for some reason Ive just recently listened to the words and now love it even more...a little confused, their could be different senarios, but mine is leaning more toward...this guy has a girlfriend who is cold and realy doesnt love him the way he wants to be loved...He is actually singing the song to the girlfriend, however, there is another girl in the picture that really shows him real love...he is trying to explain to his girlfriend how this other girl really loves him and if she could see them together and how this other girl looks at him, then the girlfriend would understand how 2 people in love should be...seems im the only one with this view. Love the song! Cant get it out of my head!



Disapproval | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/20/07

I never really felt the lyrics of this song (even though I loved it) until I was in a realtionship where his mother did not approve of me for very unfair racial reasons. Suddenly the song seemed to make perfect sense with everything, and it is an explination of love to someone who clearly doesnt understand what love is and disapproves of the relationssip



confused | Reviewer: nicole | 10/13/07

a guy told me to listen to this song, its a game we play to tell eachother how we feel but to me it seems like hes telling me I manipulate him, tell him I love him, but I dont I hold back,and Im reaching out my arms for something thats not there, does that mean he doesnt love me back?



.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/11/07

It seems to me he is talking to his buddies who give him crap about being "whipped" by his girl but he doesnt care because he knows his girlfriend loves him and he would rather have her and deal with their crap then to not be with her.
