Lyrics

If Only

Written By: Al Dano

IF ONLY

Did you ever start to say the words “If only?”
If only I could just be this or that.
If only I were free.
And you were meant for me.
Many things can accompany
The words “If only”.

Did you ever hear someone say “If only”?
If only I could tell you how I feel.
Fate hadn’t meant me to.
There’s nothing I can do.
But smile and think of you
And the words…”If only”.

If only...
… I could spend some time with you;
Do anything we wanted to.
If we could share a smile;
And I could touch your hand.
We could walk along a beach
Somewhere no one else could reach.
And maybe we could make love on the sand.
.
But as long as I can dream of sandy beaches
Or snowflakes falling softly from the sky
Then I can dream of you standing beside me.
All I have to do is close my eyes,
And say “If only”.

Did you ever stop and think the words “If only”?
They’re the words of many dreamers just like me.
If you were to ask me why
This tear formed in my eye
I’d just break down and cry
The words …. “If only”

Have you ever thought you heard the words “If only”?
Whispered oh so softly through a sigh.
I’m praying you will stay
‘Cause hopefully someday
I’ll never have to say the words……. “If only”.

If only…
…the feelings I have inside of me
Were nothing but a fantasy,
I’d shake them off and carry on my way.
But they’re real and they persist.
And you’re so hard to resist.
You’re the girl I dreamed would come along some day.

So as long as I can dream of sandy beaches
Or snowflakes falling softly from the sky
Then I can dream of you standing beside me.
All I have to do is close my eyes,

All I have to do is close my eyes.
And say….”If only.”
