if i could lyrics – 1927

if i could paint
i’d paint a portrait of you
the sunlight in your eyes a masterpiece of truth
and a single tear like a silent prayer
that’s shining so much brighter than a diamond ever dared
if i could do anything at all, i’d do it for you

if i could write
i’d write a book for you
a tale of hidden treasures with an i.o.u
and a million words wouldn’t say a thing
that won’t be said in three words
where love’s the central theme
if i could do anything at all, i’d do it for you

chorus
darling can’t you see
what you mean to me
anything that i can do i’ll do it for you
and darling don’t you know
just how far i’d go
anything that i can do, i’d do it for you

sometimes i feel so second-rate
seems loving you was my greatest mistake
i know i’m insecure
and love don’t keep score
but i wish i could give you more

if i could play
i’d play up a storm for you
a raging sea of p*ssion that you never knew
every whispered sound would touch your heart
and maybe for a moment i could be your favourite star
if i could do anything at all
if i could, i’d give you more
if i could do anything at all… i’d do it for you

chorus

and darling can’t you see
you mean the world to me
anything that i can do i’ll do it for you
and darling don’t you know
just how far i’d go
anything that i can do i’ll do it, i’ll do it for you
i’ll do it, do it for you
