I smile, you laugh, I look away
I sigh, you ask me why, I say,
It's ok and I am just feeling down
Your hand on mine I hear the words...
If only love had found us first, our lives they would be different

But that was not the plan, oh

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
Where would you do now darlin', if I said these simple words
I'll wait
I'll wait... as long as you want

And now I must confess
That I am a sinking ship
I'm anchored by the weight of my heart cause it's filled with these feelings
I keep my true thoughts locked beside my hearts black box
And it wont be found, it wont survive through the smoke or the wreckage
So I guess I'll crash and burn

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
What would you do now darlin', if I said these simple words
I'll wait, I'll wait... As long as you want.

Where would we be now baby

I'll wait
I'll wait

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
What would you do now darling, if I said these simple words
I'll wait, I'll wait... As long as you want.

Where would we be now baby
I'll wait
I'll wait
I'll wait
I'll wait

    This is my favorite song!!!It is talking about when you like one of your friends, but they are in a relationship. It's wondering what life would be like if they were together.

    I think this song is about regret. Madden says he kept his true thoughts locked then he crashes and burns. By the time he's ready to confess his true feelings, its too late and this girl is already taken. He's left thinking, if only...

    Its such a genuine and sincere song. Definitely one of my favourites by GC. It's beautifully written...

    for me it means loving someone, but that someone is with someone else or sth. and wondering if their lives wouldve changed if they met earlier in life. :)
