If I Said (Colin Blunstone) | Daily Prompt: By Heart

You’re asked to recite a poem (or song lyrics) from memory — what’s the first one that comes to mind? Does it have a special meaning, or is there another reason it has stayed, intact, in your mind?

If I said I loved you would it be so bad?
Why should it change all that we had?
You tell me, he only hurt you once before

How could he do it to you?
How could he stand to see you sad?
Why does he treat a love so bad?

If I say don’t see him, would it be so wrong?
What does it take to see him gone?

If only you could be strong enough to see
That he doesn’t matter to you
You should be making other plans
So I feel I have to say
Don’t go and throw you life away

He takes, you give
He leaves you lonely
He makes it hard to listen to me


When he takes, you give
It leaves you lonely
He makes it hard to listen to me
If I said I loved you, would it be so bad

What’s worse than a hopeless romantic?

A hopeless tormented romantic. And that was me years ago. I could write love letters, spout sonnets, and create swoon-worthy stories better—plus so much more!—than any young man in my class. Yet I could never win the girl. Not that I did not try. I just could not be seen as anything else other than a good friend.

Colin Blunstone’s song remains my plea.
