"If I Told You" is the Page McConnell solo foray into the world of electronica that was included on the Party Time bonus discRecorded in March 2008, it appears to be a musical response to a question posed. Though the identity of the querent and the nature of the question are not revealed, the hesitation and reluctance toward the subject broached is unmistakable. The lyrics of "If I Told You" lie somewhere between "Beauty of a Broken Heart" and "Heavy Rotation" two other solo tracks (from his 2007 release Page McConnelldealing with similar, if not the same, personal issues Page was therapeutically deconstructing during his time away from Phish. "If I Told You" has not been performed live to date.

Lyrics:

(McConnell)

If I told you that I'd never leave
If the feelings I could retrieve
If emotions reveal themselves
If I don't put them back on the shelves
All alone I sung a song that has gone through motions
Without emotions
I've traveled roads that I've never seen
And I've watched events flash across the screen
If the crypt with damaged walls
If the pyramid doors dissolved
If the conflict that's not resolved
Tossed around like a medicine ball
Dark horizons could open wide
And a little light could start to shine
But for now I'm just keeping stride
'Til I figure out if I'm on this ride
