If only we had shown more care
The discomfort would hurt more
But the world’ll be a lil’ better for sure

If only our care wasn’t for a wanted favour
We’d gain a lil’ less for ourselves, if any
But beauty large enough for the world to see

If only our requests were not granted
Your disappointment would be so evident
But I’d prefer if patience’s virtue be eminent

If only we hurt ourselves in the end
‘Cos we’d take two steps rather than one
Time to quell the rush: it’s freedom won

If only we did not hate ourselves
Loving the next door soul would be profitable
A ricochet of serenity becomes inevitable

If only we never loved
We’d have no luxury of this day
‘Cos the world would not exist, nor will it stay
