If We Knew

Would you stay at all?
Do you think it would hurt,
If we never met,
Do you think we would be better off,
All the fights and commotion,
Every single day,
When do you think it will ever stop,
And day turns to night,
And I'm still waiting,
And everything that we say,
We're never answering.

Would you love me anymore,
If we knew,
Would you stay here if you,
Looked into the future,
Saw everything we own,
Everything we say to one another,
Or are we better off alone,
Would you want to be here,
Anymore,
Would you want to be us,
Forever more.

I'll play the bad guy,
The fault is all mine,
Can we play another game,
Take the heartache,
And the suitcase,
And slam the door on the way out,
Breaking door frames,
Pictures burned away,
Leave me undone,
Secretly I'm gone.

Would you love me anymore,
If we knew,
Would you stay here if you,
Looked into the future,
Saw everything we own,
Everything we say to one another,
Or are we better off alone,
Would you want to be here,
Anymore,
Would you want to be us,
Forever more.

You should know me well,
Life ain't a fairy tale,
Everything you know,
Everything's a sale,
You get the life you're dealt,
And there isn't a way to get out.

Would you love me anymore,
If we knew,
Would you stay here,
Forever more.
