What if I didn't have a sister,
Would the world really have missed her?
It seems quite the mystery.

What if I didn't have a brother,
Would I have been the of favourite of mother
Instead of that waster, the other.

What if I didn't have a dad?
Would that really make me so glad,
Compared to others was he really that bad?

What if I didn't have a mum,
The thought of it makes me feel numb,
When things went wrong where would I run?

What if I had done better at school,
And not acted quite such a fool?
And made study, instead of fun the rule.

What if I'd have dumped you instead of me?
Would it have turned out as acrimoniously?
If only there was some way we could see.

What if I wasn't such a freak,
Consumed by the need to be unique,
And had anothers critique.

What if my constant vanity,
Stopped you being so mad at me,
And didn't drive you to profanity,

What if they would understand,
The feeling I get when you touch my hand,
Is it so important it's from a man?

What if I knew she was reading?
And she knew how my heart was bleeding?
I find feelings for her receeding.

Maybe it's better this way.
