Emerson Drive — If You Were My Girl lyrics

(Richard Marx/David Cole/Pat Allingham/Patrick Bourque/ Danick Dupelle/Brad Mates/Mike Melancon)

I watch the way he looks at you
He don't see you like I do
He never speaks the words I long to say

He don't know that what he's got
Is everything I'll ever want
I can't keep this inside one more day

Chorus:
If you were my girl
My feet would never touch the ground
If you were my girl
My heart would shout your name out loud
I could conquer the world
If you were my girl

You're the prayer I pray when I'm on my knees
The oxygen that lets me breathe
The flame that burns inside me all the time

Every note of a beautiful melody
The perfect rhyme in poetry
Baby, you are everything but mine

Chorus 2:
If you were my girl
My feet would never touch the ground
If you were my girl
My heart would shout your name out loud
There's nothing that I could not do
If it was you I came home to
I could conquer the world
If you were my girl

Baby, I swear this flame will burn eternally
So keep your eyes open, jump on in
You will see what you need is me
If you were my girl

Oh, I'd never want to see you cry
You're with him and I don't know why
What a different world
If you were my girl

I would conquer the world
If you were my girl
