when the night air is still
the world holding its breath
on the edge of a sunny day and gale
what if I had stayed?
what if I hadn't slammed the door and run away?
what if I had the courage to say I love you and this is not worth fighting about?
what if you had sighed and said babe I love you too?
what if I had forgiven you your flaws and you mine?
what if we were happy together?
what if I decided to spend the rest of my life with you?
what if you came after me when I ran?
what if you chased after our love?
but you didn't.
I was too proud and you too vain.
I was too afraid and you were too mad.
It was all too much for you, wasn't it?
and that's why I left
turned away and never looked back
because I was too much for you
and my undying love was never enough,was it?
but apparently her's was.
so if you ever change your mind
think you want me back
what if you were faithful?
what if you weren't a liar?
what if it wasn't my fault?
what if you were not a cheating, deceitful scumbag that was actually worthy of my love?
yeah, maybe then
but probably not
because the one thing
I know for certain is
that whatever hold you think you have over me
is as hypothetical
as these questions.
