SoCS — Regrets

If only
If only I had
If only I had said yes instead of no
I only I had look ahead instead of back
If only I had done this instead of that
If only I had listened to you instead of to them
If only I had gone away instead of staying here
If only I had moved on instead of waiting around
If only I had believed in myself instead of doubting
If only I had lived my dreams instead of denying them
If only I had
If only

    Very well written Fandango! I think all of us wonder to a certain degree about ifs.
