If I Do ...

Story Behind The Song

Trying to capture the confused ambiguous feelings that one can feel in the face of a new love ... I joke about this song being about "toddler love"- the "I want it" I don't want it" indecision often exhibited by 2 year olds!

I think I want you but
I don't want to, but
I don't care if I do.

I am broken, and
You have spoken, and
Have awoken the muse.

Been chasing this old heart around,
Feet stuck on the cold hard ground.

I think I need you, but
I don't need to, but
I don't dare if I do.

I am lonely, and
You are only a
Small reflection of truth.

Been chasing this old heart around,
Gotta get my feet back on the cold hard ground.

Lovers come and lovers go ...
Why they leave we never know ...
We live between within the ebb and flow ...
Na Na Na ...

I think I have you, but
I don't have to, but
I don't mind if I do.
