  • What if I lead the way
    What if I make mistakes
    (Will you be there?)
    What if I change the world
    What if I take the blame
    (Will you be there?)

    I remember going back
    To the place we used to lay
    But I keep losing track
    And now the days they all turn black
    And our dreams all start to fade
    But there's no turning back

    Cause the world keeps turning
    (Why do you tell me you care if you're not going to change?)
    And my heart keeps burning
    (Why do you tell me you care?)

    What if I change the world
    If I lead the way
    What if I be the one
    That takes the blame
    What if I can't go on without you
    What if I graduate
    What if I don't
    What if I don't

    Now I'm slowly giving up
    As the world keeps losing faith
    And you still turn your back
    Now the path I follow
    Takes a toll on me
    On you
    But there's no turning back

    Cause the world keeps turning
    (Why do you tell me you care if you're not going to change?)
    And my heart keeps burning
    (Why do you tell me you care?)

    What if I change the world
    If I lead the way
    What if I be the one
    That takes the blame
    What if I can't go on without you
    What if I graduate
    What if I don't [x6]

    I'll be waiting here
    I'll be waiting here
    I'll be waiting here
    For you to call me

    What if I lead the way
    What if I graduate
    What if I change the world
    Would you still remember me
    What if I lead the way
    What if I graduate
    What if I change the world
    And I find the way to tell you (what you need to hear)

    I'll be waiting here
    I'll be waiting here
    I'll be waiting here
    For you to call me Writer/s: ARNOLD DAVID LANNI, ARNOLD LANNI, CHARLES-ANDRE COMEAU, PIERRE BOUVIER
