If I Could

i’m rediscovering jack johnson. this song in particular has just been breaking my heart.

If I Could

a brand new baby was born yesterday
just in time
papa cried, baby cried, said your tears are like mine
i heard some words from a friend on the phone
didn’t sound so good
the doctor gave him two weeks to live
i’d give him
if i could

you know that i would now
if only i could
you know that i would now
if only i could

down the middle drops one more
grain of sand
they say that
new life makes losing life
easier to understand
and words are kind they help ease the mind
i’ll miss my old friend
and though you gotta go
we’ll keep a piece of your soul
one goes out
one comes in

you know that i would now
if only i could
you know that i would now
if only i could

listen and enjoy. what a songwriter.
