If I Could (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
