If You Were My Love (Reel #36)

#1

Tried to explain it
Someone that was crying
That my eyes never glow
At all
My hands reach for something
Someone that could tell me
If you were my love

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
If you were my love

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

And it can’t
And it can’t
And it can’t
And it can’t

You were my love
(you were my love)

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

Then the flame would still burn
And the flame will still burn…

You were my love…
(you were my love…)

 

#2

With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still dream

If you were my love…
However momentarily

I were the one…
Watched over your sleeping

You were my love…
You were my love…..

I tried to explain it
Someone that was crying

Someone that could tell me
You were my love

This night outside my window
Wasn’t anyone’s fault

Stevie: I’m sorry. I just…I got a…

Tried to explain it
Someone that was crying
If you were my love

My hands reach for something
That could tell me
You were my love

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

Mmm…and a number

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

Said if you were my love
You were my love

Ooh…
If I were the one
Watched over your
Sleeping
You would never…
Have been lonely
At all

Ooh ooh….
Ooh ooh ooh ooh…

 

#5

Tried to explain it
Someone that was crying
My eyes never close
At all

My hands search for numbers
A feeling that could tell me
You were my love

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
Wasn’t anyone’s fault
My hands still reach for numbers
That could tell me
You were my love

With our castles to burn
With my dreams that still burn
With my castles to burn
And my dreams that still dream

Said if you were my love

You were my love
However temporarily
I were the one
Watched over your sleeping
You would never…
Have been lonely
At all…

You were my love…
You were my love
I were the one..
Watched over your sleeping
You were my love
You were my love
You would never…
Have been lonely
At all….

But a flame will still burn
Flame will still burn
