What would it have taken
For you to love me
Would you have loved me
If I was taller or if I was shorter
If I was fairer or if I was darker
If I spoke a little more or a little less
If I bared my heart a little less or a little more
If I were more voluptuous or a bit thinner
If my hair was longer and thicker or shorter
If I wrote a little less or a little more
If I met you a little sooner or a little later
If I dressed a little more conservative or if I were a diva
If I smoked and drank with you or just stayed away
If I cooked for you or just roamed the world with you
If we built a house, or we just drifted together
If I didn’t let you go or if I just let you be?
What would have made you love me?
Perhaps, you needed to love yourself a little more
For you to love me.
