If I had to tell you our love couldn’t last,
If I had to say that our time was now past,
If I must speak words that would cut like a knife
I may as well tell you the meaning of life.
If I had to stop hearing love from your lips,
Or stop midnight magic from your fingertips,
If I had to stop thinking we were so right
I may as well stop day from turning to night.
If I couldn’t smile through my day to day care
From knowing you love me and all that we share,
If I thought our love would eventually die
I may as well pull down the moon from the sky.
If I let your face wear the shadow of fear,
If I let a shower of teardrops appear,
If I sat and watched and see sadness had won
I may as well go out and stare at the sun.
I’d try not to love you as much as I do,
Forgetting your smile and the softness of you,
Ignoring your bad mood whenever it rains,
I may as well jump up and catch airplanes.
