If I could dispose of
That I feel in my body...
If I knew how to believe
I would've had a better life
A happy ending...
And I would've had the strength to
Put to death strife
If I knew how to achieve
I would've won an award by now...
If I could forgive you
For the wrongs you've aimed at me
The wrongs you didn't admit...don't you get the clue?
I was hopeless when you left me...
To drown in the wild, potent sea
If I could forget about
The frustration...the emptiness
That I feel towards you
If I knew how to make you happy
I would've been with you long ago
We would've been together...
And I would've had the ability to
Make you whole once more
If I knew how to love
I would've won your heart in a heartbeat
If I could think of you
As if you're my best friend till the very end
I would have a chance to know you better...
You still don't get the clue?
My love for you is as fresh as dew...
Shimmering anew... cleansing you
I was full of rage when you ignored me...
And threw me away into the
You crumbled my hope...
But, I didn't let go of His rope
Oh I should have
Thought before I said those crul words to you
I should have
Held back my tongue...but things slip and stick like glue
But I licked you with
Flames of uncertainty
