If My Heart Could Write This Song II

© 1997 Brad Belt (revised 1999)


If my heart could write this song,
The words would pour like rain
And all the world would feel
The emptiness and pain
And through the years a million tears
Would fall on each refrain
If my heart could write this song.

Chorus: ‘Cause only a broken heart to write the lost-love pain
And in a song, tell the world, time and time again.
If my heart could write this song. (play, sing)

If my heart could play this song
Every note would shed a tear,
And the steel would cry the loneliest tune
That you would ever hear,
And the drums would echo her footsteps
As she walked away from here,
If my heart could play this song.

Chorus

If my heart could sing this song
Every sound would be so pure,
That it would reach the souls
Of lost lovers everywhere,
And we could share the loneliness
That broken hearts endure,
If my heart could sing this song.

Chorus

If my heart could sing this song
If my heart could play this song
And if my heart could write this song
