Only If

July 17, 2011
Only If I had a chance





Just one chance
To apologize



For all those times
I made you cry




As I stood by while
The tears oh the tears






Rolled down your eyes
Knowing the pain you felt








Was caused by this empty guy
For years oh the years






Finding ways to disguise
The white lies held in by pride









And the fear of you my dear
Not being by my side






After the yelling, throwing, screaming
Then love making and dreaming








The compelling growth of two beings
If I had one dance




One last dance
I’d hold you tight in my arms







Rub your back with my hands
Then whisper to you real calm









I’d whisper to you a psalm
As we sway in a trance







I’d tell you how my love is true
How I’ll do what you need me to










Such as lightening the mood
Whenever you’re feeling blue









So you know you’re not alone
Cause baby I’m here for you
If I had bliss



Woe is me if I had bliss
You and I would reunite






My lips on top your lips
My hands on top your hips







You directly in my sight
But I’m just a dreamer







Who lost love and is lost in love
In a vast cruel world





That doesn’t want any other girl
Except you who made me a man







Except you who flies through my mind
So swift and divine like a dove









You mean more to me than heaven above
So time after time I pursue you with rhyme














Time after time I go to the wishing well
I wish you well as I throw pennies











Hoping just hoping, Praying just praying
That no one better has found my dime












I fell apart when you left
Since then life’s been an uphill battle











Yes it is hard; yes I have ways to climb
I swear it though until your mine









I will not stop chasing love until the day I die
Or until we say I do, til death do us part












Then lie above the clouds
Together in the deep blue sky
If I had you miss




Life wouldn’t be like this
I wouldn’t sit by my phone







I wouldn’t be on the internet
Looking to sell my soul






For momentary pleasure
Because I’d have you to hold








I’d have you to treasure
Instead of sitting in the cold








Lonely in the night
Staring at the ring you bought me











Glaring before me as do the street lights
I wouldn’t walk down your street









With such disregard for your privacy
Gazing inside your window







Not caring if you call the police
Nor would I keep using this pencil










To put my heart on a page
To explain my sorrow





Say I’m sorry
And describe how love is a plague









Miss if you and I weren’t through
So many things would change








I’d be a better man who puts you first
Who remembers that you forgave









Forever I’d be in your debt
However I’d pay you back







With love, empathy and respect
That my dear is a fact






Now I know how heartache hurts
I’ll change for the better






After life turned for the worst
Hey I know it may sound cliché







I want to be together forever
Only if you really knew






How good our lives would be
If you took this chance with me










If I had one last dance
Kiss, bliss or you in all miss








Someone else would write this
I’d have my wish but I wouldn’t have this gift
