If I had known that would be the last time I hugged you
I would have never let go
If I had known that would be the last time I walked with you
I would have chose the longest road
If I had known that would be our last time we danced
I would have played a never ending song
If I had known that was your last call
I would have never hung up the phone
If I had known that was our last meal
I would have ate a life’s worth feast
If I had known that was our last goodbye
I would have said â€œdaddy, please don’t leave.â€
