If It Was Up To Me (Stabilo)

If it was up to me, I’d never look both Ways before crossing the street If it was up to me, I’d never wear my Seatbelt, and I’d probably still speed If it was up to me, I never would have Smiled in any pictures I’d most likely sleep all day If I could just relax for awhile So you better come quick I’m about to do something foolish If you could be so kind As to call the police I swear this time It’s not just for attention But I also know that you have heard that From me once before If it was up to you, I would never swear around people I’m supposed to respect If it was up to you, I’d keep in touch with Friends from the past Even though they never last If it was up to you, I’d always say my prayers before I ate And before I went to sleep If it was up to you, I’d be happy and I’d Write songs that made you happy too I can’t seem to care much for these things That you call life So you better come quick I’m about to do something foolish If you could be so kind As to call the police I swear this time It’s not just for attention I don’t want the topic to change I couldn’t ever tell you, to your face That I’ve only been pretending To enjoy this place It’s all been make believe And it’s mostly in my head The problem is we only guess Where we go when we finally rest Will it be better than where we are now Still I’d like to believe It’s better than here Better than where we are Better than here We’ve forgotten what we’re here for Or maybe we never knew If a simple life is what we want Why are we so confused? Cuz we all want a happy ending But we’re tired of children’s books We’re tired of feeling useless And we’re tired of dirty looks I swear we used to feel things Or at least we cried real tears We used to say I’m sorry But we haven’t now for years So forgive us of our sins Before we make our move Let us die in peace So we never have to choose
