If I wasn't there tomorrow, would anybody care?
If my time was up,
I'd wanna know,
You were happy I was there.

If I wasn't here tomorrow, would anybody lose sleep?
If I wasn't hard and hollow,
Then maybe you would miss me.

I know I'm a mess and I wanna be someone,
Someone that I'd like better.
I cannot forget, so don't remind me of it forever. (Forever)

What if I just pulled myself together?
Would it matter at all?
What if I just tried not to remember?
Would it matter at all?
All the chances that have passed me by,
Would it matter if I gave it one more try?
Would it matter at all?

If I wasn't here tomorrow, would anybody care?
Still stuck inside this sorrow,
I got nothin' and going nowhere.

I know I'm a mess and I wanna be someone,
Someone that I'd like better.
I can never forget, so don't remind me of it forever.

What if I just pulled myself together?
Would it matter at all?
What if I just tried not to remember?
Would it matter at all?
All the chances that have passed me by,
Would it matter if I gave it one more try?
Would it matter at all?

I know I'm a mess and I wanna be someone,
Someone that I'd like better.
I can never forget, so don't remind me of it forever. (Forever! )

What if I just pulled myself together?
Would it matter at all?
What if I just tried not to remember?
Would it matter at all?
All the chances that have passed me by,
Would it matter if I gave it one more try?

If I left tomorrow would anybody care!
Stuck in this sorrow,
Going Nowhere!
All the chances that have passed me by!
Would it matter if I gave it one more try?
Would it matter at all... ?

    This song is great. I think about it from my beat friends point of view. I tend to think if he would miss me if i was gone, and it makes me feel better because i know he would. I love him ;3
