If You Asked

a couple days ago
I fought a bear and lost
I didn’t think it mattered
but it mattered to you

a few days ago
I lost a piece of mind
I might get it back
or just pass it to you

if you asked where I came from
I could tell you the Earth
I could tell you the truth
and make you believe me

if you asked where I’m going
I could tell you the world
the highest and lowest places
and ask you come with me

a couple days ago
I sought out a bear
I thought it mattered
because it mattered to you

a couple days ago
I fought on a dare

if you asked where I was going
I’d tell you somewhere
somewhere where the angels can find me

if you asked me if I’m happy
I could show you the Earth
I could show you the truth
and you would believe me

when you look behind you
you see only hills
you don’t see all the valleys between
when the only time you
give me the chills
it’s not worth all the love lost between

if you asked where I’m going
I could tell you the world
the highest and lowest places
and ask you come with me

if you asked where I was going
I’d tell you somewhere
somewhere where the angels can find me
