If I Give My Heart

IF I GIVE MY HEART

Do you wake up as the sun shines greetings across the floor,
Kiss the newborn day and taste the night before,
Will you promise to be true
Does the ocean still sing blue
If I give my heart to you.
If I give my heart to you.

And I wonder if like dreaming this will ever end
And Id be lost upon the shore in thoughts confused again
Will you call me like the gulls in flight
Weave silk curtains from strands of light
If I give my heart to you
If I give my heart to you.

Will you share with me the wonders of an evening sky
Salute the fading day as it must surely die
Will you sing a lullaby
Or will you cry and make me sigh
If I give my heart to you
If I give my heart to you.

Once you told me that our love was like a sailing ship
And we could navigate the seas of time and never tip
And would we know just what to do
If our dreams would all come true
And I gave my heart to you
And I gave my heart to you.
