From the recording Hollow


If They Only Knew (Song for Cindy)
Jena Morrow, Jesse Burkhead, Caleb King, Heather King, Alby Odum

Walks past the storefront window
Sees her image in the glass
She doesn't know that girl
Might have met her in the past
She seems to have it all together
Might just sail on right through life
Probably someone's mother, someone's lover, someone's wife

She goes to church on Sunday
They'd notice if she didn't show
She's a familiar face a name that everybody knows
Her friends look to her for all the answers
She's always willing to give more
And all that know her love her
But there's a shadow they ignore

If they only knew
How she cries herself to sleep
If they only saw
The secrets that she keeps
If they could look beyond her mask
To the tenderness inside
They'd dig a little deeper
When she says I'm doing fine
If they only knew

She sits alone in her apartment
Dares herself to make that call
She needs someone to know she isn't doing fine at all
She wonders if they'd even like her
If they saw the wounds she hides
But all alone she's never gonna make it
She's gotta let someone inside

If they only knew
She's given up on life
If they only saw
The struggles late at night
If they could see behind the smile to where the worries lie
No one would believe her when she says I'm doing fine
If they only knew

If they only knew
