Telly Savalas – If lyrics

If a picture paints a thousand words

Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show
The you I've come to know.
And 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 left me too.

And when my love for life is running dry

You come and pour yourself on me.

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

Then one by one the stars would all go out

Then you and I would simply fly away.
