If only I had told him,
Before I rode away,
That I loved him more than life itself,
What would he have had to say?
If only she had told me,
What I saw in her eyes,
About the love she had for me,
Instead of telling lies.
If only they hadn't loved each other,
And tore my hopes apart,
If only SHE hadn't come along,
And stole the man of my heart.
If only Navi had never come,
And told him of his task,
And he hadn't answered to her call,
And taken off his mask.
If only I was not chosen,
To be the Spirit Sage,
I could have watched my people thrive,
Through hate and storm and rage.
If only Papa had never left,
And Ingo never came,
This ranch might have never changed,
It might just be the same.
If only I had stayed with him,
As he embarked on his second trail,
And guided him along the way,
To find the pretty female.
If only I had warned Miss Zelda
About the dangers she was about to risk,
If only I had advised her on Master Link,
And say, why don't you kiss?
If only my brother had never left,
To find his sweet young lady,
We could have done what brothers do,
Fishing while it's shady.
If only he hadn't interfered,
And opened the door of time,
And Ganon hadn't stolen in,
And said, ha, the triforce is mine!
DEKU TREE'S VERSE
If only he hadn't cursed my soul,
And left me to die,
I wouldn't have to burden Link,
Because my end would not be nigh.
If only those little scurvy brats,
Had left my schemes alone,
I would not be sealed behind this door,
Alone, alone, alone.
If only are two words so evil,
It's what might have been,
If Ganon hadn't leaned right over,
And Hyrule he had seen.
