What would you say if offered you freedom?
What would you say if I offered you security?
What would you say if I held you?
If I could take back everything
If I could unhurt you a thousand fold.

What would you say, if I stopped your mouth
With a kiss full of unpolished brass?
With a face full of hope and eyes
Eyes that only see you.

What would you say if I could never break
A promise. Your heart. You. Up.
If my heart were truly yours
In life and death.

What would you say if you believed me?
What would you say if I fixed everything?
Could your prayers lie easy on my lips
Heavy on my shoulders
Wet upon my cheek

What could I say to convince you?
What words mean everything?
That defy action and life and fear.
What look can reach your hellish hope
That I burned and burned and burned

What would you say if I walked away?
What would you say if exhaled your scent
And kissed your memory
And walked and walked and walked

What would you say. If I were gone?
