You give your hand to me
Then you say hello
I can hardly speak
My heart is beating so
And anyone can tell
You think you know me well
Well you don't know me

"If only she really knew me" thought Dan, "she'd know how I felt about her and how I hated seeing her with other men. If only." Dan had been Zoe's partner for two years and he'd fallen in love with her a year ago. It tore him up inside to see Zoe out with Jake, her current boyfriend, the radio DJ. He often wondered, did she feel the same way? He was afraid he'd never find out. Oh how he loved her. His heart ached at the thought of her and his heart screamed at the sight of her. She had a huge effect on him and he wanted to say something so badly.

No, you don't know the one
Who dreams of you at night
And longs to kiss your lips
And longs to hold you tight
Oh I'm just a friend
That's all I've ever been
'Cause you don't know me

Dan dreamt of how he would sweep her off her feet and give her everything she ever wished for. He imagined nightly what good a relationship with him would bring to her life, the only problem was he wasn't sure if it could ever happen. He longed to hold her in his arms and take away all the pain in her life. Jake couldn't do that for her, could he?

For I never knew
The art of making love
Though my heart aches
With love for you
Afraid and shy
I let my chance go by
The chance that you might
Love me, too

He was so afraid to say something to her. So afraid that she wouldn't feel the same way. If only he knew for sure. His heart ached to know. He was afraid he may have been to late to tell her he loved her now that Jake was in her life. Thinking of the chance that he might have lost her, broke his heart. He wanted to be with her so badly.

You give your hand to me
And then you say good-bye
I watch you walk away
Beside the lucky guy
Oh, you'll never know
The one who loves you so
Well, you don't know me

She gave him her hand and gave it a gentle, friendly squeeze. "If only she really knew me" thought Dan, "she'd know how I felt about her and how I hated seeing her with other men. If only." He watched her walk away, her arm hooked around Jake's arm. Maybe now wasn't the time to tell her. Maybe there would come a time that he could say to her, "Zoe, I love you."
