Lyrics

IF I ONLY HAD THE WORDS

I FEEL YOU ALL AROUND ME
I KNOW YOU MUST BE HERE
YOUR BEAUTY STILL SURROUNDS ME YOUR VOICE IS IN MY EAR
I SEE YOU IN THE OCEAN
YOU’RE DANCING ON THE SHORE
THE SUNSET ON THE WATER MAKES YOUR SPIRIT SOAR
AND YOUR LAUGHTER LIFTS ME UP ALONG THE WAY
THERE’S SO MANY THINGS I STILL HAVE LEFT TO SAY

IF I’D ONLY HAD THE WORDS
TO TELL YOU HALF THE THINGS I FEEL
YOU’D HAVE UNDERSTOOD SO CLEARLY THAT MY LOVE FOR YOU WAS REAL
AND I WISH I’D HAD THE COURAGE TO OPEN UP MY HEART
YOU’D HAVE KNOWN THAT WE COULD NEVER BE APART

THE COLORS OF YOUR PALETTE
YOUR CANVAS FILLED WITH GREENS
THE STROKES OF YOUR EMOTIONS
I SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS
NOW THE ROSE HAS FINALLY OPENED
THE PETALS FILLED WITH LIGHT
NOW THE VASE NO LONGER BROKEN
THE THORNS ARE OUT OF SIGHT
AND YOUR LAUGHTER LIFTS ME UP ABOVE MY TEARS
I CAN HEAR YOU WHISPER SOFTLY IN MY EAR

IF I ONLY HAD THE WORDS
TO TELL YOU HALF THE THINGS I FEEL
YOU MIGHT UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE
BETWEEN ILLUSION AND WHAT’S REAL
THEN YOU’D FINALLY HAVE THE COURAGE
TO OPEN UP YOUR HEART
‘CAUSE YOU’D KNOW THAT WE COULD NEVER BE APART

NOW AT LAST I HAVE THE WORDS
TO TELL YOU HOW I FEEL
STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND THE REASONS
AND PERHAPS I NEVER WILL
BUT I FINALLY FOUND THE COURAGE TO OPEN UP MY HEART
‘CAUSE I KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER BE APART
NOW I KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER BE APART
NOW I KNOW THAT WE WILL NEVER BE APART
