If I Was
Midge Ure Lyrics


If I was (if I was) a better man (a better man)
Would fellow men (would fellow men) take me to their hearts
If I was (if I was) a stronger man (a stronger man)
Carrying the weight of a popular demand
Tell me would that alarm her
I'd never harm her at all

If I was a soldier
Captive arms I'd lay before her
If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I'd sail to her

If I was (if I was) a wiser man (a wiser man)
Would other men (would other men) reach out and touch me
If I was (if I was) a kinder man (a kinder man)
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease her
I want to please her again

If I was a painter
I'd paint a world that couldn't taint her
If I was a leader
On food of love from above I would feed her

If I was a poet
All my love and burning words I would show it
If I was her lover
Her eyes in kisses I would cover

Come here my baby
Oh they can't touch you now
I'll keep you save and warm
I'll never leave you at all
Come here my baby
Oh they won't touch you
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease you
I want to please you again

If I was a soldier
Captive arms I'd lay before her
If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I'd sail to her
If I was a painter
I'd paint a world that couldn't taint her
If I was a leader
On food of love from above I would feed her
If I was a poet
All my love and burning words I would show it

My heart filling with some strange longing back in the days before Internet when the future was unknown and beautiful..

Kazz

wow, you've said it so beautiful!

Frank Schmitz

...and with hit-charts, not full of fu**ing hip-hop and autotune-voices.

simon warner

this song immediately catapults me back to the 80's - best decade for music. Love to go back there

simon warner

Happy New Year to you too. A very good guess. The 80's were def the best decade for music.

Ronan Raftery

Happy New Year, Simon!! Here's one for you. Why have they stopped broadcasting '80's shows on the radio?

Marcelo Tarde

Así es!

Scotty* Bucks

I grew up living it. Still part of my genetic makeup

Sadly, we cannot go back, but the music is still here with us
