If I Could
by 1927



If I could paint
I'd paint a portrait of you
The sunlight in your eyes
A masterpiece of truth
And a single tear
Like a silent prayer
That's shining so much brighter
Than a diamond ever dared
If I could do anything at all
I'd do it for you

If I could write
I'd write a book for you
A tale of hidden treasures
With an I.O.U
And a million words
Couldn't say a thing
That won't be said in three words
Where love's the central theme
If I could do anything at all,
I'd do it for you

Darling can't you see
What you mean to me
Anything that I can do
I'll do it for you
And darling don't you know
Just how far I'd go
Anything that I can do,
I'd do it for you

Sometimes I feel so second-rate
Seems loving you was my greatest mistake
I know I'm insecure
And love don't keep score
But I wish I could give you more

If I could play
I'd play up a storm for you
A raging sea of passion
That you never knew
Every whispered sound
Would touch your heart
And maybe for a moment
I could be your favourite star
If I could do anything at all
If I could, I'd give you more
If I could do anything at all
I'd do it for you

And darling can't you see
You mean the world to me
Anything that I can do
I'll do it for you
And darling don't you know
Just how far I'd go
Anything that I can do
I'll do it,
I'll do it for you
I'll do it,
Do it for you
