If I Had A Say​.​.​.

And I couldn't stay awake The way I knew that you deserved Just laid in bed ignored you And dwelt on my every nerve You deserved the best I gave you the worst The best of me was all that you could see I should've put you first. I hate watching you waste away I see you struggling every day You'd feel better if I had a say And everyday I hope that you will always stay And I just want you here with me And I want you here alive and happy It's what you earned It's what you deserve How will I ever weather this storm? This place no longer feels like home I wish that, wish that I had said goodbye I hope that I'll, hope that I'll see you again I hope that I can have another chance I hope that I'll, hope that I'll see you again

I thought that I had moved on But here I am writing down another fucking song You’d think this would have passed by now because it’s been so long But everything around me still seems so wrong But then again, I’ve never been that strong My pulse still jumps up when I walk right by you Sometimes I wish that you felt what I feel too I never thought that we’d be spending time apart The honest truth is that I fucked us up from the start I’m terrified to take a chance It scares me that one day I’ll have to break this stance And it drives me insane to watch you make some progress While I just keep slipping and falling back into more stress I know you could care less My pulse still jumps up when I walk right by you (These memories I kept locked up inside my mind) Sometimes I wish that you felt what I feel too (Have weighed down on my conscience and my pride) I never thought that we'd be spending time apart (My head is full of all the endless lines) The honest truth is that I fucked us up from the start (So I’ll erase them and I’ll rewrite them) I fucked us up from the start

You can hide your face But you can't hide your mask Step off your pedestal because we're putting you on blast Come clean Say what you mean You'll never have my respect ever again Why'd you put a chair in their backs? Why'd you formulate a sneak attack? Listen to the crowd as they scream out loud That you sold out Yeah, you sold out You put them together like an architect You swore to them that you'd never ever turn your back Then you tore it apart from the inside out Yeah, you tore it apart from the inside out

It's crazy to think what I've become because of your presence If only I didn't have to refer to you in the past tense I miss hearing you prance down the hallway You'd both still be here if I had a say The same love that you showed to me Is the same love my wife and kids will see Your pictures are still hanging from my wall It's the first thing that I see when looking down my hall And I just want you here alive and happy Wish I could have you here to see the new me
