Joshua Payne – If lyrics

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show,
With you I've come to know.

If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no-one home but you,
You're all that's let me to.

Then when my love
For life is running dry,
You come and pour
Yourself on me.

If a man could be in two places at one time
I'd be with you,
Tomorrow and today,
Beside you all the way.

If the world should stop revolving,
Spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through.

And one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away.
Then one by one the stars will all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly.

Would simply fly away...
