If I live whispering the words, if only,
I will live a life that bears no fruit and ends quite lonely.
My dreams and fortunes are waiting to be found,
all I have to do is flip those 2 words around.
Going from a wish to a demand,
puts my future back in my hands,
the plane of success only I can land.
If only I had fortune and fame,
I can, only if I develop a reputation and build a good name.
If only I could be debt free and owe no more,
I can, only if I plan for the future,
living for today will leave me poor.
If only I could spend more time with the ones who love me more times than not,
I can, only if I work harder on them than I do punching a clock.
The list of if only’s can go on for years, months, days, even hours,
I can change my circumstances only if I have a heart of desire.
For desire is a feeling of expectation or inclination of wanting more,
I know only I can unlock my future’s door.
