If ~

I knew that heaven has

Places through which we fall

If ~

I knew what’s inside, here

Is not as important as what’s out

If ~

I knew my time with you

Was measured and in doubt


Wouldn’t have said and done those things

That made time run out

And in the wrong directions

If ~

I knew how holes in Heaven

lead to the flames of Hell


The element that’s eternal, regardless of the pain

Is the power that brought us together

And it shines on just the same


It is always with us

Carried in our heart

Whether we’re together

Or we are apart
