"What If I" is an original song that Poppy made during her "Moriah Poppy" days. She posted a demo of it to her YouTube channel "Moriah Popppy" in 2013. It can be listened to here.

Theme

What If I is about Moriah questioning her lover. She describes ways she could have altered situations so their relationship wouldn't have existed. However, since she didn't do this in the past, she won't in the present. Her lover is described to have positively impacted her, but she wonders how things would have been different if she met them on another day.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
What if I, had driven round the block
To waste a couple ticks on the clock
What if I, decided not to stop
You wouldn't ever enter my thoughts
What if I, found someone else
But I have a void, that only you could help
Maybe met you on a different day
Would I have looked at you some other way

[Chorus]
But I didn't
So I shouldn't
Wonder what if I

[Verse 2]
If I were a little more smart
And learn not to think too hard
What if I were too stable to risk
Push the envelope, I know you can’t resist
But if I would gamble according to the odds
And blame my fight upon the will of God

[Chorus]
But I didn't
So I shouldn't
Wonder what if I
But I didn't
So I shouldn't
Wonder what if I

[Outro]
What if I, had driven round the block
To waste a couple ticks on the clock
