If I Can't Have You
The Flamingos Lyrics


I still can't believe it, I can't see it
I should just stop counting days
On the subject of the future
Wouldn't it be nice to leave it open-ended
And pretend it could go either way?
If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say, yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision over
If I could have you back, if I could have you back
On the topic of the time we spent together
I can't say I never wondered
If you ever think about these days
If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say, yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision over
If I could have you back
It's game over, you've lost this round
And now I get to turn you down
Thanks for all the lessons learned
I'm taking in what I have heard
Practice makes perfect
If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say, yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision
If I could have you back again
I'd think about it once or twice, I guess
If I could have you back
I'd reconsider, maybe I'd say yes
On the other hand it would be
Better to have a life
Without the constant indecision over
If I could have you back, if I could have you back
I still can't believe it, I can't see it
I should just stop counting days
