What if the alarm had gone off
What if the meeting had ran a little late
What if the roommate had answered the phone
Well then you could give her your fate
Stop your world from changing

Transforming your friends into circling hawks
Worrying that you're not eating
Worrying you're never going to stop
Now that your world's changed

And what if we had closed that window
And what if we had put on a hundred locks
They say you would have broken in anyway
And that denial's just part of the shock
When you feel your world change

A friend recalls her mumbling
As they held her hand in the emergency room
While the rest of us are filling out release forms

Back at the house she saidI should've known the second I opened the door
The cats weren't there to greet me like they always were before
And it felt strange
But I shrugged it off, didn't have the time
I stepped in without a second thought

Now the window's rattling
Years later in the middle of the night
You lay there in a cold sweat
Telling a perfect stranger your plight
The day your world changed

What if we had closed that window
What if we had put on a hundred locks
And what if the roommate had answered the phone
And what if, and what if, and what if
You can't stop your world from changing
Stop your world from changing
Stop your world from changing
