i could… if they would lyrics – billy gilman

if they would find a cure when i’m a kid
i could ride a bike, and sail on rollerblades, and
i could go on really long nature hikes

if they would find a cure when i’m a teenager
i could earn my license and drive a car, and
i could dance every dance at my senior prom

if they would find a cure when i’m a young adult
i could travel around the world and teach peace, and
i could marry and have children of my own

i could… if they would
i could… if they would

if they would find a cure when i’m grown old
i could visit exotic places and appreciate culture
and proudly share pictures of my grandchildren

if they would find a cure when i’m alive
i could live each without pain, and
i could celebrate the biggest “thank you” of life ever

i could… if they would
i could… if they would

if they would find a cure when i’m buried into heaven
i could still celebrate with my brothers and sister there, and
i could still be happy knowing that i,
knowing that i, was a part of the effort
