I would if I

I would if.... KAF

I would if I could roll back the years
I would simply hold back the tears
I would pin back the ears
I would clip away the thorns
With my shears

It was just a blur
I blinked and you weren't there
Frightened standing in the dark
You could smell it in the air
we were supposed to trip the line fantastic
I was gonna be like Fred Astair 

what happened was a comedy of errors, poor judgement
and an opportunity taken advantage of.
It's what happens when she stopped caring and pretending she's in love.

I'm in my lonely place banging away at my computer keys.
one year and a day from where she left me.
Am I worse for the wear, most noticeably.
Am I carrying on as if love will one day abound right here beside me. Most definitely.

I would if I could roll back the years
I would simply hold back the tears
I would pin back the ears
I would clip away the thorns
With my shears
