If I had stopped on that fateful day If I had just stopped, let you have your say Would you be here with me? Or would you still be so far away? I saw your face behind the glass I knew I couldn’t pass You knew too much, I couldn’t hide. So I said three words “not a chance” I drove away, praying you couldn’t see The truth of what had become of me Just a block away, I pulled over I cried the tears of shame and grief. You never came back after that day I never forgave myself for sending you away. I would change those three words If only I could have my say.
