Unrequited

Wish I had told her how I feel
Maybe she’d be here right now

But instead

I pretend that I’m glad you went away
These four walls close in more everyday
And I’m dying inside
And nobody knows it but me

Like a clown I put on a show
Paint it real even if nobody knows
And I’m crying inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didn’t I say
The things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just a tumbling down
I can say it so clearly
But your no where around

The nights are lonely and the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I’m missing you
And nobody knows it but me


I carry a smile when I’m broken in two
And im nobody without someone like you
And I’m trembling inside
And nobody knows it but me

Lie awake its a quarter past 3
I’d scream it at night if I thought you’d hear me
Ya my heart is calling you
And nobody knows it but me
Baby

How blue can I get
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle its been torn all apart
A million words couldn’t say
Just how i feel
A million years from now you know I’ll be loving you still

The nights are lonely
And the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I’m missing you
And nobody knows it but me

Nobody, nobody but me

Tomorrow morning I’m hitting the dusty road
Gonna find you where ever
ever you might go
And I’m gonna load my heart
And hope you come back to me

The nights are lonely and the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I’m missing you
And nobody knows it but me

Babyface - Nobody knows it but me

One response to “Unrequited

  1. The first time I heard this song, it was while listening to a station that played country music. It wasn’t until later that I heard this version. Same message although the music style is different.

    I’m thinking about the Bonnie Raitt song, I Can’t Make You Love Me, while reflecting on the title of this post.
