"As a child I thought if I could touch the sky I could touch the face of God. As a man I learned that all I had to do was touch my own heart"

IF MY HEART HAD WINGS, MY LOVE

GOSSAMER AND GOLD

I’D SOAR ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN TOPS

IN SEARCH OF YOUR ABODE

 

 

I’D LIGHT ME DOWN SO SWIFTLY

BY YOUR GARDEN FAIR

AND WRAP MY WINGS AROUND YOU LOVE

AND GENTLY HOLD YOU THERE

 

 

I KNOW YOU ARE AN ANGEL

CLOTHED IN FLESH AND BONE

FOR I CAN SEE YOU WINGS, MY LOVE

EACH NIGHT WHEN WE’RE ALONE

 

 

THEY BEAT UPON THE PILLOW

AND BRUSH AWAY MY TEARS

THEY SHIELD ME FROM THE NIGHT FALL

AND BANISH ALL MY FEARS

 

 

HOW CAN I BE TRUE, MY LOVE

TO ONE AS PURE AS THEE?

I AM BUT A MORTAL MAN

STRUGGLING TO BE FREE

 

 

EACH DAY I FACE THE DARKNESS

THAT TRIES TO HIDE THE LAND

I WEAVE MY WAY THROUGH JAGGED ROCKS

AND SOMEHOW MAKE MY STAND

 

 

SHE SAYS I AM AN ANGEL

GOSSAMER AND GOLD

SHE FEELS MY WINGS AROUND HER

EACH NIGHT WHEN WE’RE ALONE

 

 

SHE SAYS I BRING HER LAUGHTER

AND CAUSE HER HEART TO SOAR

FAR ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN TOPS

WHERE SHE’S NEVER BEEN BEFORE

 

 

FOR ARE WE NOT ALL ANGELS

CLOTHED IN HUMAN FORM?

IF WE COULD BUT BELIEVE THIS

THIS WORLD WE WOULD TRANSFORM

 

 

WE’D SOAR ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS

TO PLACES FAR AND NEAR

WE’D SPREAD OUR WINGS UPON THE EARTH

AND BUILD OUR GARDEN HERE

 

 

IF MY HEART HAD WINGS MY LOVE

GOSSAMER AND GOLD

I’D SOAR ACROSS THE MOUNTAIN TOPS

IN SEARCH OF YOUR ABODE

 

 

I’D LIGHT ME DOWN SO SWIFTLY

BY YOUR GARDEN FAIR

AND WRAP MY WINGS AROUND YOU LOVE

AND GENTLY HOLD YOU THERE
