My Own Path


If I hadn't listened to my own sad song

Would we have even gotten along?

If I had gone my own way

Would you have been swayed?

If I had died that night

Would you still pick a fight?

If I had not cried those tears

Would you still be feared?

If I had the strength of an army tank

Would you watch me if I sank?

If I had been a boy, the one you hoped for

Would you have been happier therefore?

If I had the courage to tell you I was in pain

Would you still see it as "no pain no gain"? 

If I hadn't be disobedient 

Would you have been more lenient?

If I hadn't turned out the way I did 

Would you still love me, the way I did?
