If Only

If only I were alone,
If only I had the bed to myself,
If only just one night,
If only, If only.

If only I were comfortable,
If only I were covered,
If only I were warm,
If only, If only.

If only my sisters hadn't heard me,
If only my brothers hadn't left,
If only I were not alone,
If only, If only.

If only they came back,
If only I said I was sorry,
If only we slept closer,
If only, If only.
