IF

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


I was at karaoke on Friday night and this man sang this song. He has such a beautiful voice. I had not heard it in years, but for the first time the words meant something to me.

Dusty ~ I always think of "If" and "Killing Me Softly" by Roberta Flack in the same breath. *wistful sigh*

This is my blog - Comes With Warning Labels. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

that's a beautiful song, if not exactly my taste though

...That which does not kill me merely pisses me off!...
