"If I Could Have You Back" as written by and Dan Wilson Aj Michalka....
On the subject of you being gone forever
I still can't believe it; I can't see it
I should just stop counting days
On the subject of the future
Wouldn't it be nice to leave it open-ended
And pretend it could go either way

[Chorus:]
If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision over
If I could have you back
If I could have you back

On the topic of the time we spent together
I can't say I never wonder if you ever think about these days

If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision over
If I could have you back

It's game over
You lost this round
And now I guess I've turned you down
Thanks for all the lessons learned
I'm taking in what I have heard
(Practice makes perfect)

If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision

[Chorus]

    this part hits me hard.
    i was lead on by a guy....twice.
    but yet i still can't seem to shake him from my system.
    this pointed out to me that it's my choice to say no, and that i should, because it's what's best for me.
