Wondering

Buffer

My attempt at free-verse poetry or lyrics. If this could somehow be made into a real song, I think it would be best sung by Bon Iver, Ray LaMontagne, Active Child, Avril Lavigne or someone who has a voice that can turn sub-par non-rhyming lyrics like these into a beautiful yet painful song.

“Wondering” by: Shane Reiser

Was it a lie?
I believed it
You said you loved me with your eyes
Now I’m here wondering

If I could have taken a different path

Said something different
Did something special
Altered the outcome so that I’m
Here with you instead of wondering

If I could have taken a different path

This isn’t how it was supposed to be
Not how I saw it going down
I thought you were here to save me
But you left me wondering

If I should have taken a different path

*bridge*

Without you
I’m lonely
Without you

Without you
I’m lonely
Without you

*end bridge*

Is it better to have loved and lost?
This pain I feel
I might be better off
I can’t help but wonder

If I had taken a different path

A path that didn’t lead
To that moment when we locked eyes
A path that forfeits our good times
But spares me the pain of wondering

If I should have taken a different path

I’m not sure I’ll ever find my strength
Without you
Without you

I have to wonder if I should have taken a different path
Without you
