Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song:
Whatif I'm dumb in school?
Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
Whatif I get beat up?
Whatif there's poison in my cup?
Whatif I start to cry?
Whatif I get sick and die?
Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
Whatif I don't grow taller?
Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
Whatif the fish won't bite?
Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
Whatif they start a war?
Whatif my parents get divorced?
Whatif the bus is late?
Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
Whatif I tear my pants?
Whatif I never learn to dance?
Everything seems well, and then
the nighttime Whatifs strike again!
Everyone has whatifs... These are the ones of those closest to me.
JJ- Whatif I don't remember the things that are most dear?
Elise- Whatif I can never get pregnant?
Jimmy- Whatif I never hurt my shoulder?
Alexis- Whatif I can't learn my ii V I's?
Nat- Whatif my best isn't enough?
Asher- Whatif I go bald?
Anothony- Whatif deer eat my garden... again?
Amberly- Whatif my baby's poop blows out of her diaper?
Marianna- Whatif he breaks my heart?
Brandon- Whatif the world's crude oil supply is depleted by 2015?
