IF

Another song inspired by the words of that famous writer . . . . . I. M. Anonymous

http://www.soundclick.com/html5/v3/play ... 6705&q=hi

If I never met you, I wouldn't like you.
If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you.
But I did, I do, and I will

How could I imagine what I didn’t understand,
how can I accept it without knowing who I am,
how can I foresee what I can’t even plan
But I did and I do and I will.

How could I know what’s in my heart,
how can I see when we’re so far apart,
and how could I envision our life as art
but I did and I do and I will

Where was it that we met I seem to forget
it was so long ago a lifetime or so
though I can’t remember then
I can’t remember when
that I wasn’t in love with you

If I never met you, I wouldn't like you.
If I didn't like you, I wouldn't love you.
If I didn't love you, I wouldn't miss you.
But I did, I do, and I will. But I did, I do, and I will

You are really stepping up the pace Chefie. I like this, a lot. I like the melody, I like the repetition, I like the thought involved, I like the bridge.
'll need to step up my game!

I'm not familiar with the words that were the inspiration for this. Definitely a song where the simple repetition of the idea works very well. Nice job.
