If you had really wanted it

 

If you had really wanted it

You would have come back to talk

You would have reached beyond the bounds

Of what you knew

And reached out in love to make it true

If you had really wanted it

You could have pulled it off

But first youíd have had to look at yourself

And heal the wounds within.

You canít love another when your torn apart inside

No matter how hard you try,

In the end itís the same everyway each time

Nothing left to do but tears and cry

 

If you had really wanted it

You would have tried harder,

You would have called more than once

Again and again

You would have sent an email

Or sent an IM

And said Iím sorry I made a mistake in my approach,

Please letís try again.

You would have tried to understand

The one you claimed to love

And figured out the differences

That were actually what made you

Interested in the first place

 

If you had really wanted it

You would have never quit

Itís too easy to give up

Real love never leaves the ship
