If The Stars Were Mine
Melody Gardot Lyrics


If the stars were mine
I'd give them all to you
I'd pluck them down right from the sky
And leave it only blue
I would never let the sun forget to shine upon your face
So when others would have rain clouds you'd have only sunny days
If the stars were mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd put the stars right in a jar and give them all to you
If the birds were mine
I'd tell them when to sing
I'd make them sing a sonnet when your telephone would ring
I would put them there inside the square, whenever you went out
So there'd always be sweet music whenever you would walk about
If the birds were mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make them sing for you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make them sing for you

If the world was mine
I'd paint it gold and green
I'd make the oceans orange for a brilliant color scheme
I would color all the mountains, make the sky forever blue
So the world would be a painting and I'd live inside with you
If the world was mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd wrap the world in ribbons and then give it all to you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make them sing for you
I'd put those stars right in a jar and
Give them all to you

I love Melody's voice because it isn't forced. So many singers press and push and strain, which is not what this instrument is meant to do. Her voice is naturally beautiful, light, smooth--perfect. Don't change a thing, Melody.  I want to hear you for many years to come. 

PJ Miller

@BenHopkins1000 Perfect sounding.

Jason Carpp

I agree. Beautiful singing!

@gatofelixriodejaneir No. To be honest, I like Melody as much as Kylie here. She's beaten the odds, and made something out of herself. She's an inspiration.

OK. I think got it. She does all the work while you go after elaborating it, right? I think that's something new, a new concept. Would you, please, tell me the name of it?

@gatofelixriodejaneir Not critiquing, elaborating.

I love the lyrics. They're some of the sweetest that I've ever heard in a love song.

Bruce Courtney

It's as if her music transports me into the magic of a 1940's romantic movie! It's a true escape for your mind. You just sit back and drift away!

Oh Melody, I wish the stars were mine so I could do exactly so for you. You have the most beautiful voice I've ever heard, and write the most amazing music.
