Kooks, The - If Only Lyrics




So hold your head, and hold your tongue
But only say what you have to
And as a child yes I dreamed
Of holding her in the silver screen
She loved her man and loved him twice
I wish I'd been that passenger
Having fun, fly my kite
The devil inside won't control my life
Too much love, so little hate
The devil inside won't control my fate

Oh, if only, if only
Oh, he wasn't so lonely
He'd have someone to play with
Instead of bombing our neighbours
Yeah, yeah...

So here I go to see the world
With my eyes and with my soul
And too much love, so little hate
The devil inside won't control my fate

Oh, if only, if only
Oh, he wasn't so lonely
He'd have someone to play with
Instead of bombing our neighbours
Yeah, yeah...
Yeah!

So hold your head and run my time
The what of life no man can rhyme
So here we are and here we bleed
To be a victim there's no need
Having fun, I never fight
The devil inside controls my life
Too much love so little hate
The devil inside controls my fate

Oh, if only, if only
Oh, he wasn't so lonely
He'd have someone to play with
Instead of bombing our neighbours

Kooks, The If Only Comments
  1. José Luis García Romero

    So hold your head, and hold your tongue
    But only say what you have to
    And as a child yes I dreamed
    Of holding her in the silver screen
    She loved her man and loved him twice
    I wish I'd been that passenger
    Having fun, fly my kite
    The devil inside won't control my life
    Too much love, so little hate
    The devil inside won't control my fate

    Oh, if only, if only
    Oh, he wasn't so lonely
    He'd have someone to play with
    Instead of bombing our neighbours
    Yeah, yeah

    So here I go to see the world
    With my eyes and with my soul
    And too much love, so little hate
    The devil inside won't control my fate

    Oh, if only, if only
    Oh, he wasn't so lonely
    He'd have someone to play with
    Instead of bombing our neighbours
    Yeah, yeah
    Yeah!

    So hold your head and run my time
    The what of life no man can rhyme
    So here we are and here we bleed
    To be a victim there's no need
    Having fun, I never fight
    The devil inside controls my life
    Too much love so little hate
    The devil inside controls my fate

    Oh, if only, if only
    Oh, he wasn't so lonely
    He'd have someone to play with
    Instead of bombing our neighbours
