Ooh if only, ooh if only

If you listen to the night
You can hear the darkness fall
I can barely stand the wait
I can barely stand at all

Come on closer to me now
Like we're sharing the same skin
We gotta get out of this jail
We gotta let the future in

So many things in your life
That you're bound to regret
Why didn't I do that?
Why didn't I do this?

So many chances you've lost
That you never forget
Why didn't I make it?
Why didn't I take it right then?

The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be
It could've been me, it could've been me

The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be
It could've been me, it could've been me

You'll have to pay for it later
If you don't get it
While it's going for free
Believe me, believe me

A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
It's something that's always been so
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

And one of these nights
You're gonna show me
That you already know

There's a feast waiting for you
And you've never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

You shouldn't tremble when they touch
There's no reason for these fears
It's a promise that was made
We've been promised this for years

I want to show you it all
What to do and where and how
'Cause we'll never be as young as we are right now
Never be as young as we are right now

So many cries in the night
That you try to ignore
Why didn't I do this?
Why didn't I do that?

So many un-answered prayers
So many un-opened doors
Why didn't I take it?
Why didn't I make it come true?

The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be
It could've been me, it could've been me

The loneliest words you'll ever know
If only, if only it was so
The emptiest words that there'll ever be
It could've been me, it could've been me

You'll have to pay for it later
If you don't get it while it's going for free
Believe me, believe me

A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
It's something that's always been so
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste

And one of these nights
I'm gonna show you
That you already know

There's a feast waiting for you
And you've never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

There's a feast waiting for you
And you've never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind
It doesn't matter what we lose
It only matters what we're going to find

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind
It doesn't matter what we lose
It only matters what we're going to find

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind
(Let's get away from the past)
It doesn't matter what we lose
It only matters what we're going to find
(So many ways to go fast)

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind
It doesn't matter what we lose
It only matters what we're going to find

Tire tracks and broken hearts
That's all we're leaving behind
It doesn't matter what we lose
It only matters what we're going to find

There's a feast waiting for you
And you've never even gotten a taste
It's later than you think
And a kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
A kiss is a terrible thing to waste
