If You Were My Love

Piano Demo (5:10)

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
Wasn’t anyone’s fault

My hands reach for numbers
Someone that could tell me
You were my love

I tried to explain it
Someone that was crying
It wasn’t anyone’s fault

My hands reach for numbers
Someone that could tell me
You were my love

With our…crosses to bear
And our dreams that still burn
With our crosses to bear

If you were my love…
However momentarily
Ooh…
If I were the one
Watched over your sleeping
You would never
Have been frightened
At all

And he said
If you were my love
However momentarily
Ooh,,,
If I were the one
Watched over your sleeping
You would never
Have been frightened
At all

And the flame will still burn
The flame will still burn
If you were my love

 

Reel #26 2/20/81

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
Wasn’t anyone’s fault

When the moon rolls over the mountain
You are lost in dreaming
Where is the wild white rose
(where is the wild white rose)
I try to explain
Someone who was crying
If you were my love

My hands reach for something
Someone that could tell me
Wasn’t anyone’s fault
Wasn’t anyone’s fault

Crosses to bear
Our dreams that still burn
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still burn

You were my love
My love..
However momentarily
Oh..
If I were the one
Over your sleeping
You would never…
Have been frightened
At all..
At all…

With our crosses to bear
Then our dreams that still burn
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still burn

If you were my love
However momentarily
Ooh..
If I were the one
Watched over…your sleeping
You would never
Have been frightened
At all…
At all….
At all…
At all…
Faithful..

 

Mirage Outtake (5:31)

Stevie: And put, like some ring on the guitar or something, or…and on the piano. Make it sound more…sparkles.
Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my…
And the sun turns away
As the moon rolls over the mountain
And you are lost in your dreaming
Where is the wild, white rose….

Oh no…
My hands reached for numbers
Someone that could tell me
Oh, if you were my love
If you were my love

With your crosses to bear
And your dreams that still live on
With your crosses to bear, now
And your dreams that still live on
Whoa…
Moment to moment
Yeah, yeah
Moment to moment
Well, they say that everyone…everyone…everyone
Must remain faithful
Oh…

However momentarily
Now, now
If I were the one…
Who watched over your sleeping…
No, no
You would never…never…
Have been frightened…
No…oh…no, no…
Not at all….

And our dreams that still live on
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on
Oh, moment to moment
Yeah, yeah
Moment to moment
Well, they say
Everyone…everyone
Must remain faithful
Oh…ooh

If you were my love
If you were my love
If you were my love
(No…)
If you were my love
(Moment to moment)
If you were my love
If you were my love
If you were my love
If you were my love
(Oh no…)
If you were my love
(Moment to moment)
If you were my love
If you were my love
If you were my love
(If you were my love…)
If you were my love
(You were my love)
If you were my love
If you were my love
It goes on and on and on down baby
If you were my love
No…
No, no no
If you were my love
You might never leave it there, but go

 

Street Angel Outtake

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
And the sun turns away
As the moon rolls over the mountain
And you are lost in your dreaming
Where is wild, white rose…
My hands reached for numbers
For someone that could tell me
It wasn’t anyone’s fault….

With your crosses to bear
And your dreams that still live on
With your crosses to bear
And your dreams that still live on
If you were my love…

If you were my love…
However momentarily….

Now, now
If I were the one
Who watched over your sleeping…
You would never…
Have been frightened
At all…at all…

With our crosses to bear
(Crosses to bear)
And our dreams that still live on
With our crosses to bear
(Crosses to bear)
And our dreams that still live on
Moment to moment
(Moment to moment)
Moment to moment
(Moment to moment)

If you were my love…
If you were my love…

They say everyone…
Must remain….faithful…
