What If...

What if you and I switched places?
What if I had you crying?
And each day I said I love you
Without it ever having meaning

What if I put someone else first?
And there was other man in my life
And it wouldn’t mean a thing
Even if I was your wife

What if I lied to you?
Over and over again
I want to know
If you would love me then

What if this was who I was
And you were just the innocent one
How would it make you feel?
When I told you we’re done

What if my love for you wasn’t real?
But you continued loving me
Please tell me how I should feel
Because I can’t live like this anymore

I love the way you start ach stanza with what if and then goes into depth. the last stanza just ends it perfectly

I like it, but I think you can do more. Don't get me wrong, I just feel you can expand a bit. For me, it was over too fast. Really, I think that this piece could be part of a song.
