If Only
Lyrics
IF ONLY

Driving the streets downtown tonight
Under the glow of neon lights
Thinking how far I've come since the days I grew up here
I pass my old house and the high school track
Reminded of loves that did not last
Vivid memories start to fill my eyes with tears

If only, time told me
Looking back could be so lonely
If only, I'd clear my head...yeah, if only

It's so surreal how this place changed
But in my mind it stays the same
All of this has made me who I am today
I left this town for bigger dreams
Brighter lights and better scenes
Life is fine so why am I feeling this way

If only, time told me
Looking back could be so lonely
If only, I'd clear my head, yeah

If only, time told me
Going home could be so lonely
If only, I could say goodbye ...if only


My life, led me to a new beginning
So why, am I hanging on

If only, time told me
Looking back could be so lonely...if only

If only, time told me
Looking back could be so lonely
If only, I'd clear my head, yeah

If only, time told me
Going home could be so lonely
If only, I could say goodbye...if only
