About If I Loved You

"If I Loved You" is a show tune from the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical Carousel. The song was introduced by John Raitt as "Billy Bigelow" and Jan Clayton as "Julie" in the original Broadway production. The song was performed in the 1956 film version Carousel by Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones. In the show, the characters of Billy Bigelow and Julie Jordan sing this song as they hesitantly declare their love for one another, yet are too shy to express their true feelings. The song was in turn inspired by lines of dialogue from Ferenc Molnár's original Liliom, the source material for the musical. There were four hit versions of the song in 1945: Perry Como (#3), Frank Sinatra (#7), Bing Crosby (#8) and Harry James (8). Many artists have recorded the song over the years.

If I loved you, time and again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you, words wouldn't come in an easy way
`Round in circles I'd go
Longin' to tell you but, afraid and shy,
I'd let my golden chances pass me by

Soon you'd leave me, off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you

Soon you'd leave me, off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I love you, if I loved you
