"If Only" as written by and John William Feldmann....
If only I was taller
If I had a million dollars
Maybe then you'd be with me

If only I was eighteen
And had the courage
Of the A-Team
Maybe then you'd be with me

But for now I'll have to dream
About your smile 'cause you're not
Here and all I want to say is
That I really miss you

If I could surf a little better
If I had Sumner's sweater
Maybe then you'd be with me

If only I had more time
If I had Mike Ness' hairline
Then you'd want to be with me

If only you weren't so fine
If only I wasn't so blind
I'd find a way
To make you stay
Then maybe I'd see you

If I woke up
With all these things
Would it even change your feelings
None of that is even me
But for now I'll have to
Wait another week
To see your face and all I want to say is
That I really miss you

    General CommentIf a girl wanted to be with me because I had hair like Mike Ness, then shoot me in the face.

    General CommentOne of my favorite Goldfinger songs....so true!!!!! its like whatifs? like what would make the person be with you? and then wondering if all those things would even change anything - if it would make them want you at all. its about wanting someone so bad it hurts...but kinna deep down knowing you can't have htem, even if you were a million differnet things. its a good song, i love it , its catchy and means alot. to me anywayz.

    General CommentI really like one of the girls I know, but I can't have her because she's already got a boyfriend, so it doesn't matter what I change about myself...
