I Would if I Could

If I could go back to that day
You know in a heartbeat I would
Now all the words you say
Hurt me more than my blades ever could

Like Fric and Frac or Tigger and Pooh
We were together all the time
Even though I never dated you
It felt I was yours and you were mine

I liked you and you liked me
We'd think about it all night
If only we saw what they could see
Maybe things would've ended right

All our feelings stayed in one self
We didn't dare take the risk
Story of us put away on a shelf
What happened next… cooler than brisk

The other girl; the one you found
Made you happier than I ever did
I should've known it was bound
She won you over without a bid

Bad intentions she let you down
You started so high and fell to the ground
Now all you can do is mope and frown
Hope there is a next time around

I guess I lost my chance
Because you'll wait forever for her
‘Til then I’ve lost my prance
Should've said something before for sure

Reading the way you feel
Knowing it could've been changed
It's hard to think all this is real
Everything's been so deranged

Now all the words you say
Hurt me more than my blades ever could
If I could go back to that day
You know in a heartbeat I would
