About If

"If" is a song written by American singer-songwriter David Gates in 1971. Originally popularized by his group Bread, the song charted at number four on the U. S. Billboard Hot 100 when released as a single in 1971 and number six in Canada. The song also spent three weeks at number one on the U. S. Easy Listening chart, and one week at the top of the Canadian AC chart. In the U. S., Bread's version was the shortest song title to become a top ten hit until 1993, when Prince (musician) hit No. 7 with "7", later matched by Britney Spears' No. 1 hit "3" in 2009. "If" has been a perennial favorite at weddings (for example, as a first-dance song) ever since it was released.

 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away
