Blue Merle — If I Could lyrics

If I were you I'd turn this thing around
Before it runs aground
But I know you and there's nothing
That could ever slow you down
I closed me eyes hoping
It would all work out in time
But here we are
And there's nothing I can do
To change your mind

Cause if I could you know I would
If I could you know I would
If I could you know I would

I circled once then twice
Before I finally found the words
The sweetest sound but nothing
That you ain't already heard
I knew the day would come
Your ship would run aground
But I know you and
There's nothing you would do
To slow it down
I wish I could slow you down

Cause if I could you know I would
If I could you know I would
If I could you know I would

I should've known
My chance was gone
The way you laughed
When first we kissed
Another round and I'd have won
But as it was it never came
Your body spoke a thousand truths
Another shade into my soul
I'm on my knees and begging now
What would it take?

Solo

I'm down on my knees

Cause if I could you know I would
If I could you know I would
If I could you know I would

Cause if I could you know I would
If I could you know I would
If I could you know I would

If I were you I'd turn this thing around
Before it runs aground
