If Only

My wake up call is set for early morning
Iím feeling very small inside this bed thatís made for two
Instead of sad and lonely, I'm imagining, if only
You were here with me, so near that we could never be unglued


If only you could see my eyes
And how they light up at the sound of your voice
If only you could see my eyes
Youíd see the rush that turns a man into a boy

If I just close my eyes
I can pretend Iím home with you, not out of sight
And for a moment I can be, close enough I might believe
That youíre here with me tonight

If only you could see my smile
As I swear I catch a breath of your perfume
If only you could see my smile
As I picture us alone inside this room

It doesnít come through every time
But itís there inside my heart and only you
Can reach inside and take it, Ďcause I know youíd never break it
Thatís a thing youíd never do

When I was a younger man, you made me see
Just how my life was laid out in front of me
And I knew that I could never let you get away
Darling, I know there's one thing, that I have learned
If I could love you twice as much in return
Ooh, Baby, ooh, Baby
I would still want to give you so much more

If only I could touch your skin
I would lay a serenade upon your lips
If only I could touch your skin
You would feel my every heartbeat in my kiss

It always makes my whole world spin
When your voice across that phone just calls my name
So now Iíll dream, and then Iíll wake, a little closer to that day
When Iím home with you again

When I was a younger man, you made me see
Just how my life was laid out in front of me
And I knew that I could never let you get away
Darling, I know there's one thing, that I have learned
If I could love you twice as much in return
Ooh, Baby, ooh, Baby
I would still want to give you so much more

It always makes my whole world spin
When your voice across that phone just calls my name
So now Iíll dream, and then Iíll wake, a little closer to that day
When Iím home with you again

And in the morning I will wake, a little closer to that day
When Iím home with you again

Yes, in the morning I will wake, one morning closer to that day
When Iím home with you again
