I dyed my hair black
Painted my nails blue
Cried myself to sleep
Instead of calling you.

What If
I signed an 'X' for my name
Jumped out of a plane
Left you to blame

What If
I lit a candle
Let it burn all night
Dreamt of leaving
On a one-way flight

What If
I called to you
You weren't there
My heart torn in two
You still didn't care.

What If
I wished away the pain
Flushed you out of my veins
Just to start all over again.
