Lyrics

Not As If

Written By: Bruce Bale

It's not as if the world shuts down
Every time the roller coaster comes to town
It's not as if you just get off
It's not as if the air is charged
Safe within the refuge of your arms
I could slip into your life
Make it dark and haunted
But it's not as if you'd really want that

It's not as if I have no place
In all your christenings and victory parades
Waving for the band to go
It's not as if the camera lies
Washed out in the hot light of your eyes
I could reinvent your world
Like a house of mirrors
But it's not as if you'd think I'm serious

But we've got everything we need
between us
We've got you and I've got me
Both with a free shot at our dreams
Works for me

It's not as if it comes too late
When the tent comes down
The trucks load up
And drive away
It's not as if I have no choice
But all I've known of comfort is your tender voice
And I would give my heart to you
Perhaps you'll never know this
But it's not as if you'd really notice

And I would not pretend that you
Could feel the way that I do
But it's all I've got
And it is not
As if
