If I knew how to love you then,
It might have worked out now.
If I knew to stop fighting then,
We would get along now.
If I knew that you didn’t mean what you said,
No tears would have fallen from our eyes.
If you could have taken back your words
I would have taken back mine
If I knew just how to listen without yelling,
We could have a normal conversation.
If I knew how to make you happy then,
Maybe you would be happy now
If I knew how to stop being jealous
People could be jealous of us
If I knew not always to have the last word,
Our last words would be I love you
Maybe if I knew everything I know now,
We would be perfect.
