My If-Only’s
AABA
If only I had seen the love in you
If only I had known you were true
My life would’ve made more sense
And would require no defense
But all my if-only’s
Have just left me lonely

If only I had not been so resigned
If only I’d done what’s in my mind
My life wouldn’t gone amiss
And could have been full of bliss
But all my if-only’s
Have just left me lonely

Bridge:
Everyday I long for you
As I wrote this song for you
Perchance you’ll return to me
Do you still have concerns for me

If only you had not turned away
If only we could reverse that day
Our lives would’ve been alright
And could have been full of light
But all my if-only’s
Have just left me lonely

Coda:
I pray the day I drop my if-only’s
And you come home to me, if only
