"If I Had Never Loved You"

If I had never loved you,
I wouldn't feel like this.
If I had never loved you,
There would be nothing to resist.
If I had never loved you
My heart would not be broken.
If I had never loved you
These words would not be spoken.

I would not be feeling this -
And tasting salty tears.
I would not be feeling loss
Or realizing my worst fears.
I would just be moving on -
And have someone take your place -
Instead of reminiscing
And missing your sweet face.

If I had never loved you,
And the whole thing only play,
These words would not be written.
No, I wouldn't feel this way.
If I had never loved you,
I would not have the blues.
If I had never loved you,
My heart could bear the news.
