Barbra Streisand – If I Could lyrics
If I Could
I'd protect you from the sadness in your eyes
Give you courage in a world of compromise
Yes I would
If I could
I would teach you all the things I've never learned
And I'd help you cross the bridges that I've burned
Yes I would
If I could
I would try to shield your innocence from time
But the part of life I gave you isn't mine
I've watched you grow
So I could let you go
If I could
I would help you make it through the hungry years
But I know that I can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could
If I live in a time and place where you don't want to be
You don't have to walk along this road with me
My yesterday won't have to be your way
If I knew
How I'd try to change the world I brought you to
And there isn't very much that I can do
But I would
If I could
If I could
I would try to shield your innocence from time
But that part of life I gave you isn't mine
I watched you grow so I could let you go
If, if I could
I would help you make it through those hungry years
But I know that I can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could
Yes I would
Yes I would
If I could
