If I Could Tell Her Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
He thought you were awesome
Verse 2
He thought I was awesome? My brother?
Verse 3
Definitely!
Verse 4
How?
Verse 5
Well, he said
There's nothing like your smile
Sort of subtle and perfect and real
He said
You never knew how wonderful
That smile could make someone feel
Verse 6
And he knew
Whenever you get bored
You scribble stars on the cuffs of your jeans
And he noticed
That you still fill out the quizzes
That they put in those teen magazines
Verse 7
But he kept it all inside his head
What he saw he left unsaid
And though he wanted to
He couldn't talk to you
He couldn't find the way
But he would always say
Verse 8
If I could tell her
Tell her everything I see
If I could tell her
How she's everything to me
But we're a million worlds apart
And I don't know how I would even start
If I could tell her
If I could tell her
Verse 9
Did he say anything else?
Verse 10
About you?
Verse 11
Never mind, I don't really care anyways
Verse 12
No, no, no just, no, no he said, he said so many things, I'm just, I'm trying to remember the best ones So, um -
He thought
You looked really pretty, er
It looked pretty cool when you put indigo streaks in your hair
Verse 13
He did?
Verse 14
And he wondered how you learned to dance
Like all the rest of the world isn't there
Verse 15
But he kept it all inside his head
What he saw he left unsaid
Verse 16
If I could tell her
Tell her everything I see
If I could tell her
How she's everything to me
Verse 17
But we're a million worlds apart
Verse 18
And I don't know how I would even start
If I could tell her
Verse 19
If I could tell her
But what do you do when there's this great divide?
Verse 20
He just seemed so far away
Verse 21
And what do you do when the distance is too wide?
Verse 22
It's like I don't know anything
Verse 23
And how do you say
I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you
Verse 24
But we're a million worlds apart
And I don't know how I would even start
If I could tell her
If I could
