if you were mine lyrics – billie holiday

if you were mine
i could be a ruler of kings
and if you were mine
i could do such wonderful things
i’d say to the stars
“stop where you are
light up my lover’s way”
and every star above you would obey

if you were mine
i would live for your love alone
to kneel at your shrine
i would give up all that i own
yes, even my heart
even my life
i’d trade it all for you
and think i was lucky too
if you were mine
