(No More) What Ifs

  • All the could-be's buzzin' 'round
    My mind a thousand-timely cloud
    And now I can not see the sun

    All the worries on my list
    Rush like lamings off a cliff
    I'm powerless to save even one

    All my friends tell me I'm thinking too much
    It's not over 'til it's over
    Because today is trouble enough
    Live tomorrow, 'til tomorrow

    I'm not jinxing what could be
    Second guessing what I see
    There is you and there is me
    No what if's
    My crossing fingers knocking wood
    'Cause worrying about we could
    Spoil the moment when it's good
    No more what ifs
    Could-be's
    One day's
    If only's

    That intro's looping on and on
    Don't really get to feel the song
    When it's only playing in my head

    If I don't listen with my heart
    Trust my instincts from the start
    Then I'm as done, as done can get

    So I'm not
    I'm not jinxing what could be
    Second guessing what I see
    There is you and there is me
    No what if's
    My crossing fingers knocking wood
    'Cause worrying about we could
    Spoil the moment when it's good
    No more what ifs
    Could-be's
    One day's
    If only's

    If the sky falls down
    What if it don't work out
    What if a black cat crosses my path
    Does that mean you and me, we're not gonna last?
    What if Mr Right turns out to be wrong?
    What if there's no happy ending for this song
    What if the one for me is the one that's she's with
    When my heart feels love, or will my head believes it?

    I'm thinking too much.
    It's not over 'til it's over
    'Cause today is trouble enough
    Live tomorrow, 'til tomorrow

    I'm not jinxing what could be
    Second guessing what I see
    There is you and there is me
    No what if's
    My crossing fingers knocking wood
    'Cause worrying about we could
    Spoil the moment when it's good
    No more what ifs
    Could-be's
    One day's
