If by Emilie Autumn


If I had a mystery

I’d spoil the surprise

Giving it away to you

To see it through your eyes

If I had a song to sing

I’d name it after you

So that each time it was heard

Everybody knew

That no one mattered anymore

And no one ever would

That I would stop the spinning earth

If only music could

And if I had a purer heart

I think that I could be

Something that you’ll someday need

If only that were me

For if I look inside myself

At what I hide away

I find my heart will never be

The reason that you stay
