There were infinite different paths,
I could have travelled along the way.
I wonder if in any of them,
I could have managed to make you stay...
I think, what if I were pretty,
and maybe a bit smarter too?
Would you still have left me?
Would I have still loved you?
What if I had kissed you,
that evening in the snow?
Silver starlight all around us,
and me never wanting to let go.
What if I hadn't called you again,
so soon after our date?
If I had sat home and just waited,
could I have avoided this fate?
What if I were like her,
so sexy, tall and smart?
Would I be cuddling in bed with you,
or still here with my broken heart?
Life is a series of choices,
so where did I choose wrong?
I must be at fault somehow,
I've known it all along.
You're so strong and smart and perfect.
Always far too good for me.
I know I have nothing to offer you,
I just wish you didn't agree.
What if I never loved you?
What if you never let go?
What if you never gave up?
What if I were still whole?
