If I Had Words aka Looking At You (Lyrics)


if i had the world to make a day for you
i'd fill each hour with praises and shower you
if i held the sun inside my hands
i'd shine it bright inside your heart

and i'd turn my praise and focus to the thought of you
and stand you there
a statue in my soul forever

i dreamed i saw you dancing and i joined you there
and spun we did in the moon's warm light

know I dreamed that they take away everything that you held close and sorrowful for
I will love you like no man can and we will dance at the ide of love
I'll take the moon I'll take the sun from the starry sky
and decorate your nights with light and shadow like no other can, bright

I will dream of stealing you from all the things that bother and hurt you
you my love and only love alone

If I could make another day for you
and shadows taken all of you, and shadows taken all of you
and I can see my heart beat louder and my face grow warm
each time you stand by me my only love, ray on me

so if you your man and family do remember this the time we only caught short view
of each other while in some it shine
I will rake in each day and sell it to you
and sell it to you and sell it to you my love

no captain but you my love
no king but you


If I could make a day for you
I'd swim with all the wrongs and the lies

If I had both the sun and moon
I'd cool your hot head and warm your cool nights

If I could wake you from your death
I would leave and come and break the worlds

So I'm awake, it’s been too long
Ten years I have waited for your ghost, no life/lie

But I do know at last (?) and take the beating of your heart
Once stilled and place it fast

While I went wandering through the hills
Dreamt of you
I/a dance toward me skipping wild
And rain came pouring down upon the rain
Dream of you and never say the rest...

Oh wildly I wait for death to come
And I embrace her when she arrives
To take me to the great unknown
I know I'll find you there, waiting

skip and repeat: when she arrives
To take me to the great unknown
I know I'll find you there, waiting

Oh and the rain will keep you warm/give you warmth
And make sure that your hand fights for long
And rain will keep your thumbs so loud/long
That no other can be so proud
