if i could lyrics – catie curtis

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 wanna be
you don’t have to walk along this road with me
my yesterday won’t have to be your way
if i knew
i would 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
