IF ONLY

IF ONLY TIME COULD TELL

THAT THIS WAS HER LAST MOMENT

I WOULD ASK FATE TO KEEP AT BAY

 

IF ONLY DESTINY COULD COULD BE FAIR

TO HIM, I WOULD HAVE LAUGHED

A LAUGHTER THAT WOULD NEVER END

 

IF ONLY I COULD SEE YOUR TEARS

I WOULD HAVE HELD YOU CLOSER AND

NEVER LET GO OF YOU EVEN FOR A SECOND

 

IF ONLY I COULD WATCH YOUR STEPS

I WOULD HAVE PLAYED A SONG THAT

WOULD NEVER END

 

IF ONLY REALITY COULD STARE BEFORE ME

MAYBE, I COULD CHANGE IT ALL,MAYBE

IF ONLY YOU HAD FAITH

 

IF ONLY I COULD SEE BEYOND

I WOULD BRING ALL THOSE JOYOUS MOMENTS

AND KILL THIS SILENCE THAT I FEEL

IF ONLY,YES, IF ONLY
