    If I
    Could take back the memories

    All the days
    Wandering if
    I could ever be

    Committed in a long distance relationship
    Could you stand me
    My resistence
    Comes because of determination
    To get to the other side

    Feel me?

    You know my dreams
    And yet will you be able to
    Stay with me
    In what I decide

    If I

    Had magic
    To undo the hands of time
    I would have rearranged our situation
    So you could be right by side

    It's twisted because I feel uplifted
    And sometimes
    I know that I can't except the fact
    That my pride won't leave me alone

    If I could

    I would have understood
    Through the silence and the pain
    That your heart was telling me to stay

    But
    You just let me go
    And fly away

    You let me go
    The same way I came in

    And I would be so tempted
    If the feelings shifted
    To intense passion
    In the heat of the moment
    Not being able to control myself this time

    We've got to take it slow
    Because something's telling me
    You can't bare it anymore

    Where Do I Go?
    Feeling so low

    Just wish you knew
    The moments
    When I just don't know

    I wish you knew
    How many times
    I've tried to answer this question
    Time and time before

    If I

    Could

    I would have never met you
    If it meant me having to be without you
    My folks just want me to succeed
    And it's hard for me
    If I could
    I would have changed my mind
    Don't be afraid

    The love we shared
    Many dared
    And saw was so divine

    Where would I be?
    If you didn't carry me?

    I just don't know

    FLOW IT LIKE YOU KNOW IT!

    I am feeling you on this one for sure! Sometimes the hard choices are the necessary choices. And "What God has for you..." you know the drill. Best wishes in all your hopes and dreams.
    They are not as far out of reach as you think.
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
