Lyrics

If I Had

Written By: Jeffrey Alan Gossan

“If I Had”

INTRO
VERSE ONE:
First time I kissed you, Felt it down in your toes
First time I kissed you, Felt it piercing my soul
There is a river, Rushing wild in our hearts
Deep waters rising, Though we’re miles apart

CHORUS
Hey, hey baby, if I had a flower
For every time, I thought of you
We could dance, In the garden forever
And love would be, All we knew
(½ INTRO INTO SECOND VERSE)

VERSE TWO:
There is a symphony, Rises up from my soul
Sweet sweet melody, Even angels don’t know
Love is a live, Hear your smile through the telephone
Sweet tender words, Reaches deep in my bones
(CHORUS)
(½ INTRO LEADING INTO BRIDGE)

BRIDGE:
Tell me all your secret thoughts
Oh the wonder all around you
Take me to …Take me to your secrets spots
Gently guide … Guide me through

VERSE THREE:
Lightening crashes, thunder rolls, Under this Kansas sky
These miles get old, That’s when I realized, I crashed into you
Oh what a sweet collide ………..(A7) ………. The sun shining through
(GUITAR LEAD)
Bb, F, C, …… Bb, F, D7
C, G, D …….. C, G, D7

(FINAL NEW CHORUS) d
D – Hey, hey baby C - G - If I had a flower
D – For every time C - G – I thought of you
D – We could dance C – G – In the garden forever
C – And love G-would be all we knew

(END IS ½ INTRO)
D – C …….. If I had
D – C …….. If I had a flower
D – C ……. We could dance
D – C ……. Dance in the garden
D – C ……. We could dance, baby we could dance …….. D – C IF I HAD

Nothing Compares

Written By: Jeffrey Gossan

Verse One:
I've climbed the rocky mountains
Road rivers that were so wild
They could take your breath away
I free fell through a blue sky
Caught a wave on the first try
God knows I've had some fun

Chorus:
Nothing compares to you baby
This love you're giving me is crazy
Yea it's knocking me off of my feet
Your kiss is a new world wonder
Rocks me like rolling thunder
I've never seen anything like it anywhere

Nothing compares (to you baby)
Nothing compares(yea it's crazy)
Nothing compares to the way, you love me

Verse Two:
Everyday is a new adventure
I'm making new discoveries
That are blowing my mind
The way you dance in the moonlight
Cuddle up to me just right
Everything I need is smiling back at me

Bridge:
Baby, baby, baby, I'm coming back for more
