  1. If I Could/Lyrics

From the recording If I Could/Lyrics

Lyrics

IF I COULD, I’D PROTECT YOU FROM THE SADNESS IN YOUR EYES
GIVE YOU COURAGE IN A WORLD OF COMPROMISE
YES I WOULD

IF I COULD, I WOULD TEACH YOU ALL THE THINGS I NEVER LEARNED
AND I’D HELP YOU CROSS THE BRIDGES THAT I BURNED
YES I WOULD

IF I COULD, I WOULD TRY TO SHIELD YOUR INNOCENCE FROM TIME
BUT THE PART OF LIFE I GAVE YOU ISN’T MINE
I WATCHED YOU GROW, SO I COULD LET YOU GO

IF I COULD,I WOULD HELP YOU MAKE IT THROUGH THE HUNGRY YEARS
BUT I KNOW I COULD NEVER CRY YOUR TEARS
BUT I WOULD, IF I COULD

YES IF I LIVE, IN A TIME AND PLACE WHERE YOU DON’T WANT TO BE
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WALK ALONG THIS ROAD WITH ME
MY YESTERDAY, WON’T HAVE TO BE YOUR WAY

IF I KNEW,I WOULD TRY TO CHANGE THE WORLD I BROUGHT YOU TO
AND THERE ISN’T VERY MUCH THAT I CAN DO
BUT I WOULD, IF I COULD

OH BABY, DADDY WANTS TO PROTECT YOU
AND HELP MY BABY THROUGH THE HURRY YEARS
CAUSE YOU’RE A PART OF ME AND IF YOU EVER, EVER NEED
A SHOULDER TO CRY ON
OR JUST SOMEONE TO TALK TO, I’LL BE THERE, I’LL BE THERE
I DIDN’T CHANGE THE WORLD
BUT I WOULD
IF I COULD.
