If I Could

Never seen you look so sad

Never seen you feeling so bad

Wish there was something I could do

Soothe your heart in some kind way

Make everything change

Turn back the time for you


If I could, 

That’s what I’d do

For you 


It’s been bad but this is worse

Nothing takes away the hurt

The darkest night cannot compare

I’d light a candle and sit by you

Bring the morning gently through

Hold you so you know I care


If I could

That’s what I’d do

If I could 

That’s what I’d do

For you


In you I see a part of me

Devil may care and selfish need

But the call of your heart couldn’t be denied

Just one glance and she changed your mind

But now, she’s set you free


I heard you say there’s no hope

Flames of love have turned to smoke

And the ashes are falling ‘round your heart

But I want to show you a burning light

Love that shines in two boys eyes

And lives forever in their hearts


If I could 

That’s what I’d do

If I could 

That’s what I’d do

For you
