lyrics

Every so often I think about you
And the times we spent and the fun had as one
And if only I knew then what I know now
There are lots of things I think I'd rather have done
And It's not like I avoid your messages
I'm just trying hard to forget you ever existed

If I knew you were gonna leave me
I would have grown my hair out
If I knew you weren't gonna hold me
I would have taken my hand back
If I knew you weren't gonna kiss me
I would have dreamt another dream

Someday I'll ask if you regret
The things you said and the things you'd done to me
And I wonder if I said some things I shouldn't
Cause you're leaving didn't come too gracefully
And it's not that I dislike saying your name
I'd just rather not remember all I lost

If I knew you weren't gonna call me
I would have turned my phone off
If I knew you weren't coming over
I would have gone out fishing
If I knew you weren't gonna love me
I would have saved mine for someone else

The time has come to trust another
Take a chance that it will be better than the last
And if things go right she'll turn into the mother
Of our kids and we can go start our own past
And I'll try to not compare you to what's-her-face
But if her name slips it shows she's never really left

If I knew you were gonna leave me
I wouldn't have even bothered
If I knew you weren't gonna love me
I wouldn't have given mine so quickly
If I knew you weren't gonna marry me
I would have gotten out long ago
