If Only

If Only...
Our town didn't lure you
with our safety and care
and of course the jobs

If Only...
You were more quiet
didn't haveyour charm
and made friends
when you met them

If Only...
You were not so special,
that even God got greedy
wanting you before we let go

If Only...
The road was never there
the tree was never planted
she never got a car
you never made friends so fast
you didn't live in their neighborhood

If only you weren't in that car.
