A gentle and loving ballad originally inspired around the time of "IT!!'' and completed 4 years later. About as wistful and pretty as I am capable of.


Good morning, my little gem
It's so good to talk to you again
I can see you are surprised and amazed
I been counting down the months and the days
Did you think this was a little boy phase?
Sometimes I feel like I can't wake from the dream
We try so hard to never say what we mean
I can tell you this, whatever it's worth
I'd have followed you to the ends of the earth
All I got now are these two little words
If only, if only
Another place another time
If only If only
I'd be yours and you'd be mine
We gotta have some understanding here today
Oh I'm tired of all the awful cliches
Of unrequited love and the one that got away
You're on a pedestal that stand in my mind
I can visit you any old time
You don't have to reciprocate in kind
Doo--doo-doo-doo, I can't read your mind
And you will never read mine, baby.
