If You Would Only
If you would only call me once,
by GREENWOLFE 1962
And write a letter too;
It might just end the pain I feel
That comes from loving you.
If you would only be my friend,
And when you see me smile;
You'd bring me happiness unbound
And make my life worthwhile.
If you would only come one time,
And sit down by my side;
I'd tell you things you'll never hear
That others choose to hide.
If you would only hold my hand,
As I prepare to go;
And kiss my cheek one final time,
That's all I'd have to know.
Yes, all I need from you my dear
Is just to know you care;
Then I'll have joy for all my life
And still have some to spare.
Then with such joy, I'll surely be
Delivered from my plight;
And go to sleep, contented then
To sleep alone at night.
Yes, if you did these simple things,
That's all I would require;
Then I could live without it quenched,
The love that I desire.
