As If

It was more than a matter of knowing
All the words that were finally said.
It was more than the coming or going
Of the things that remain in your head.
It was more than a matter of wanting
Or needing
The foolish games we played.

As if I ever cared to make you cry.
Could’ve been right;
You know that it was,
And yet you knew I was sorry
I dared to make you cry.
As if I would,
As if I could,
As if I tried.

But the words that were finally spoken
Like the thoughts that were made in my soul,
And the hearts that were finally broken,
An embrace that would never be whole.
And the words that I never told you,
I could have told you
The foolish things I’ve said.
As if I ever cared to make you cry.
I could’ve been right;
You know that I was,
And yet you knew I was sorry.
I dared to make you cry.
As if I would,
As if I could,
As if I tried.
As if I ever cared to make you cry.
I could’ve been right;
You know that I was,
And yet you knew I was sorry.
I dared to make you cry.
I could’ve been strong,
But the words didn’t rhyme
All the things that would come between us.
