(Dolly Parton)

The word "If", just two tiny letters
Says so much for something so small
The biggest little word in existence
Never answers, just questions us all.

If regrets were gold, I'd be rich as a queen
If teardrops were diamonds, how my face would gleam
If I'd loved you better, I wouldn't be lonely
If only, if only, if only.

But looking back now I see clearly
With my twenty-twenty hindsight
Oh, but don't think I haven't paid dearly
'Cause you could be in my arms tonight.

If regrets were gold, I'd be rich as a queen
If teardrops were diamonds, how my face would gleam
How I let you go, I swear is beyond me
But if only; ah, if only; oh, if only.

I could start over if I could go back
Have the power to change things then I would do that
But I listened to others like a fool, oh, shame on me
But if only you would just come back.

If only, dare I even ask, oh, if only...
This song is from the album "Halos & Horns [Sugarhill]" and "The Acoustic Collection: 1999-2002 [Sugar Hill]".
