Oh If I Could

by Duncan Jones

If I could fly …
I’d take you far away
From everything
That makes you cry
You could finally sigh
And I’d put an end
To every lie
Don’t you know I’d try
Oh, if I could fly …
And when we were flying …
Maybe you would feel
Just like a child
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?

If I could sing …
I would climb up
On stage for you
And I’d sing anything
How the notes would ring
Lead the band
Feel just like a king
Just like a bird in Spring
Oh, if I could sing …
And when I sang it loud
Maybe you would turn
Way up the dial
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?

If I could dress …
I’d walk right in
Right up to you
You’d tell me “Yes!”
Together we would look the best
Be so charming
Have so much success
But I digress …
Oh, if I could dress …
And when I asked you
Maybe you would
Really like my style
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?

If I could dance …
I would reach out
And I’d take you
By the hands
And I would be your man
Music playing …
It would be so grand
Dancing with the band
Oh, if I could dance …
And when we were dancing
Maybe you would say
"Let’s stay a while!"
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?

If I could fight …
I’d guard your way
I would keep you
I would hold you tight
I’d stand watch all night
Tell them “No!”
And it would be alright
Soon would come the light
Oh, if I could fight …
And when I held you
Maybe night wouldn’t
Seem so wild
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?

And if I could run …
I’d show you how
To run from those
Out on the hunt
And all the guns
Hand in hand
Life would be fun
We’d run in the sun
Oh, if I could run …
And when we ran
Maybe we’d run far
Run for miles and miles
But would you know
That all my show
Was just to see you smile?
