What If?--Lyrics

By Karen Taylor-Good, Jason Blume and Greg Barnhill

VERSE You said goodbye and with a word It seemed my whole world crashed down to earth. I cursed your name and the night so black And I guess all along I should have thanked you for that.

ĎCause now Iím out from under And as I look around I wonder:

CHORUS I What if everything that make us sad Turns out to be not so bad, That everything that seems so wrong Is what I needed all along? And what if we donít have a clue? What if weíre just not meant to? What if everything in lifeís a gift? What If?

VERSE Lifeís a question, tale untold, We find all the answers as it unfolds and I have learned through trials and tears That faith is my freedom, and itís stronger than fears.

And what Iíve been afraid of, Maybe thatís the stuff dreams are made of.

CHORUS I

BRIDGE Thereís more to the picture than we can see. Weíre part of a tapestry. Itís a beautiful mystery.

CHORUS II What if everything that make us sad Turns out to be not so bad, That everything that seems so wrong Is what I needed all along. And what if things that made me cry Made me stronger bye and bye? And everything they threw my way Made me who I am today? And what if Iím just finding out That trust is what itís all about? What if everything in lifeís a gift? What If?
