If I Could Have is a song about do-overs. I've often thought about how if I could be sent back to the past to correct my mistakes, I'd likely make them all over again. Maybe worse.
I've been married for twenty years now, and that's plenty of time to screw up plenty and to get into a lot of fights. I've sat with myself for many moments trying to figure out where something went off the rails.
Maybe this is just me, but I've also wondered if I would change my partner if I could?
We all have our faults – would I fix those in her? Would she fix mine? I don't know if that's such a good idea.
