If things had been different
Would I be the same today
Would I feel the way I do
Would I say the things I say

If things had been different
Would I care the way I do
Would I think the same as always
Would I think so much of you

If things had been different
Would I care about my health
Would I give into my faults
Would I even like myself

If things had been different
Would I see some good in all
Would I care to see the sunrise
Would I stand so proud and tall

If things had been different
Would I really care at all

You have such a variety in your style of writing - I like that! I'm bad about only writing one way all the time! I really have to "make" myself change beat & tempo occasionally so that all my stuff doesn't sound alike.....very unique style here you used!! Bravo! Welcome by the way! This is the first I've seen of you - hope you like the forum!
