If only
If only
If only

When our eyes locked
I had a feeling
I hadn't even met you, but my heart was reeling
I couldn't stop gazing
At your face
I wanted nothing more than to embrace
Love at first sight, I thought was a fairy tale
But I couldn't deny my feelings for this female
My life became better
And everything in it
My happiness surpassed all previous limits
Then you became ill; I feared that day
Your sickness would not go away
Your lifestyle was not healthy enough to keep you alive
I'm sorry that your intake was
I'm sorry that your intake was
Too much of the bad stuff and not enough of the good
Too much of the bad stuff and not enough of the good

You deserved better—ya never should
Have had too much of the bad and not enough of the good
You deserved better—ya never should
Have had too much of the bad and not enough of the good

If only we'd met sooner, I could've helped you
Together we could've made everything better
If only
If only
If only

As I lay you to rest, I promise you this:
Although I couldn't help ya live a longer life
I will do my best to lessen someone else's strife
Although we didn't have enough time to save you
I can still inspire people to not consume
Too much of the bad stuff and not enough of the good
Too much of the bad stuff and not enough of the good
Too much of the bad stuff and not enough of the good

You deserved better—ya never should
Have had too much of the bad and not enough of the good
You deserved better—ya never should
Have had too much of the bad and not enough of the good
If only
If only
If only
If only
If only
If only
If only
If only
