If You Already Knew...

What if you were born
Knowing how your life would unfold
Where you'd skin your knees
When you'd see your first rainbow
What if you couldn't choose
What you'd say or do
There'd be no surprises or waiting for sign-es
If you already knew

What if you were born
Knowing you'd keep falling in love
Whose lips you'd first kiss
When you'd wish for the love that you missed
What if it was all planned
When you said your "I Do's"
Be no hesitating-could simply stop dating
If you already knew

What if you were born
Knowing what every tomorrow would bring
Where you'd sit and cry
When you'd say your last goodbyes
What if you could grow old
Knowing who'd be there with you
There'd be no denying that day you were dying
If you already knew
What if you already knew
