Emerson Drive – What If lyrics

(Jeffrey Steele/Steve Robson)

Boxed in, feel small
Four walls closing in just like clockwork
On a line too long
Hung out drier than the desert sand
And it just don't feel like the stars are lined
The world is mine, the time is right
But what if? Yeah, what if...

This is that one day
The one that you always say
If it ever came along
You'd never let it get away
Just like a last dance
There's never a second chance
To hold on, so hold on
What if this is that one day?

It's so hard to see your dreams you're building
Crashing down fast just like dominoes
You can't hide on rooftops from raindrops
So spread your wings and soak it up
It's easier to quit the game and hide your pain
But what if? Yeah, what if...

(Repeat chorus)

Oh ya never know
You never really know
But what if? Yeah, what if...

(Repeat chorus)
