lyrics

If I Could Write a Song

if I could write a song - that held your hand when you were scared
(Can I write that song?)
let you know your dreams were shared
(Can I write that song?)
wrapped you in warmth when you are cold
(Can I write that song?)
I can write a song -
to give you comfort when you are old!
(Can I write that song?)

if I could write a song -
stop him drinking when you were young

(Can I write that song?)
with loving arms and silver tongue
(Can I write that song?)
let him stay there and love you true
(Can I write that song?)

if I could write a song –
that would solemn nights in dawn renew!
(I'd write that song and sing it to you my dear –
I'd write that song!)
I would write that song and sing it to you
until you came to know the end of fear! (Can I write that song?)
what is a song? - a sacred rhyme born from urgent need of heart
the night is long - no purpose there, just a soul and holy art
no right or wrong – when dream fills my eye you are the vision's start!
(the vision's start!)

I cannot write that song -
calms your tempest into a squall
(I cannot write that song) -
gives you Eden without a fall
(I cannot write that song) -
gives your life a strength ahead
so I wrote this song - I wrote this song instead

(break)

I cannot write that song - that gives your life a strength ahead
so I wrote this song - I wrote this song instead
