If You Want – Written Sunday 30th October 1994 (Aged 19)

If You Want

you know, we can all be together
if you want
we can all do what we can
just to make sure our future is alive
if you want
we have all just got to try
somethings are hard
we never know why
just why somethings die
we can all state a point of view
if you want
it is really up to you
i am getting it together
and trying to make things better
say something, write me a letter
take a stance if you want
do what you can
we can all do what we want
something is better than nothing
nothing is negative though
and there is no point in being negative
because the world
it will still be here tomorrow
we can all get through now
if you want, we can work it out somehow
