"Hypothetically" as written by and Lyfe Jennings....
What if I broke our monogamous agreement
What if I told you a lie, but didn't mean it?
What if my one mistake had the potential to break up our happy home?
Would you want to know?

What if I confessed it
And though she didn't mean nothing...sex happened...
You're thinking bout leaving
What if I suppressed it, and made a vow to never mess with another?

Is it cool for me to smother the facts? is it cool for me to cover my tracks?
If you know... (if you never know)
Or would me not being honest hurt you more?

Hypothetically, of course, are there some things better left unsaid?
Or would you wanna know instead?
Hypothetically, of course, are there some wars not worth fighting?
...Some tears not worth crying now...
Hypothetically, of course, what if this happened to you?
What would you want me to do?

And what if I told you that I had a confession?
What if I said four years ago when we were arguing
He came to comfort me and I wound up pregnant
And I just can't say for sure if the baby's yours

Now what if I confessed it,
And it turned out not to be your baby after you get tested?
And it destroys what we've been blessed with

What if I suppressed it?
'cause technically you're the baby's daddy anyway
Is it wrong for me to want you to stay?
Would you rather have me tear you away from the only family you know?
Or is it just too big a secret to keep it on the low?

Hypothetically, of course, are there some things better left unsaid?
Or would you wanna know instead?
Hypothetically, of course, are there some wars not worth fighting?
...Some tears not worth crying now...
Hypothetically, of course, what if this happened to you?
What would you want me to do?

Would you wanna know?
Would you wanna know?
Tell me what you'd do!
Tell me what you'd do!
Would you walk away, or would you wanna stay?

Would you wanna know?
Would you wanna leave the past behind us?
Or are you afraid that one day it might find us?

Would it even matter
Could it even matter?
Should it even matter?

Hypothetically
Hypothetically, of course
Hypothetically
Hypothetically, of course

    General CommentThe song is basically a guy trying to find out how his girl would react to certain things he did but not exactly telling her out front that he did it. It's like the whole "I have this friend who did this behind his girlfriends back,if it happened to you how would you react?" sorta thing.We know throughout the whole song that its him he's confessing about but he's trying to give the illusion that the whole scenario is a hypothesis;a prediction and she does the same to him.
