lyrics

What if I would have chosen you,
Who would I be?
I never told you I wanted to try
something new.
I guessed you already knew.

It's midnight,
I'm struck
with a sort of memory of us
that could have been true.
But we don't mesh that way
you always say
we play different games
but I can learn the rules,
for you.

But it's too late to do anything anyway.


Can we work like that?
What a mess it would be
if anyone found out
Is it worth losing sleep?
Gaining grief?
No, it's not real.
And how would our lovers feel?

It's midnight,
I'm struck
with a sort of memory of us
that could have been true.
But we don't mesh that way
you always say
we play different games
but I can learn the rules,
for you.


I'm taken,
you're taken,
we're both mistaken,
but what if, what if?
(x4)


What if I would have chosen you?
Who would I be?
