What if I tell you, I still love you?
Will you turn around and look in my eyes and say you love me too?
Or will you leave me behind,
And walk upon streets overlain with withered leaves that crunch beneath your feet-
The same way as my heart shatters everyday,
Just craving for you?
What if I hold your arms again in my own?
What if I gulp my ego and beg you not to leave?
Will you clasp me in your arms and draw me to your chest-
Or will you forsake me and walk on hand in hand with someone else-
Whom you can't get off your mind,
Who reigns in your thoughts and dreams and fantasies-
The way I never could do?
What if I call you up at midnight and tell you how songs remind me of you?
Will you, in a husky sleepy voice, say that it's the same way with you too?
Or will you just hang up the phone,
Leave me in darkness,
And disappear into the world where all your dreams come true?
My mind is ripped by questions-
Questions that start with what-if and end nowhere,
Questions that blame me for all that happened,
Questions that still make me feel -
Perhaps you could have been mine.
Those are not questions at all.
Those are just regrets that surge up in my mind
And make my heart bleed again-
With the dagger of what-ifs.
