Thinking, What Ifs

Looking back
Maybe I shouldn't have let you go
I should allowed you talk me into staying
Then again, maybe not.

She watched you
Didn't wait to see the burn
Yet I guess somehow you passed that.

So now after walking on half-baked truths,
Hog-washed lies,
Down-right tales,
She comes right back again
Plagued with the same thoughts that drove her away.

What if she had not hooked up with your friend?
Or you with hers?
If you had given yourselves some space
To think things through.
What if your friends had not pried?
All well-intentioned of course.

Years gone,
Hearts have broken, been broken,
Healed, patched, mended,
You remain the only one she wants
One thing keeps you apart.

The one question that plagues her mind
The matter of beliefs.
What if...
