about

An upbeat tune with a cynical lyric that asks people that have everything: "What if you were me and had regrets... would you change things if you could?"

lyrics

You say "Don't worry, it will be fine
Just be the best that you can be"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you've got everything you need

So you tell me I should forget
So you tell me "no regrets"

But what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
Oh what would you do?

You say "Don't worry, you'll find someone
There's plenty of other fish in the sea"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you're in the place where you want to be

But what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
What if there was a way
A way to go back and change those days?
Then would you take it, run with it
Rewrite the story of your life?

Oh what would you do?
What would you do?

It's not easy to watch the winners from a place so far behind
It's not easy to leave and go to the happy place in your mind
No, no
No, no...

You say "Don't worry, I'm always there
For anything you ever need"
That's easy for you to say
'Cos you're a happy person indeed

Still I wonder what I would do
And I wonder about you

'Cos what if you made mistakes?
And what if you caused a heart to break?
What if you sat by and idly watched as the world passed you by?
What if there was a way
For you to go back and change those days?
Then would you take it, run with it
Rewrite the story of your life?

Oh what would you do?
Would you change it all?
Or just let it go?
And just leave it be?
Oh what would you do?
