If Only

If Only


If only I could reach a little farther

If only they had waited longer

If only they heard me through the thunder

If only I could have been a little stronger
If only I didn’t load that gun

If only he gave me his wallet

If only I hadn’t panicked

If only I ran
If only I studied that night

If only I passed the test

If only I graduated

If only they didn’t kick me out
If only I had some luck 

If only I went to church

If only if someone cared

If only
If only I tried harder

If only I didn’t make excuses

If only I cared about anything

If only
If only I was a better person

I wouldn’t be losing blood on the asphalt

If only I wasn’t selfish

I wouldn’t have hurt those around me
If only

If only

If only
