If I had stopped to button my coat,
If I had skipped class that day,
If I had gone to another library or another school…
Would I have met you?
If you hadn't worn those pants,
If you hadn't walked in front of me,
If you hadn't said, "Hey."
Would you be at my side now?
Would you be at my side still,
When your hair has thinned and mine is grey?
Why you, why me, why us?
