If Only

If only I had told them,

If only they would listen,

But I let the innocence stay,

So selfish to their eyes glisten.

 

I should've told them about the world,

But I let them stay young.

I should've told them: danger!

But it's all done.

 

There is no going back

I cannot turn back time,

For this i regret my choice

I have committed the worst crime.

 

My daddy told me once you've

Opened the Pandora's box,

Your childhood was over,

So I set it on full lock.

 

I let the child stay in them,

Trying to correct what I did

When I was young and didn't listen,

I don't know who's the bigger kid.
