If I Could
   ------Celine Dion

(I'd like to dedicate this next song
to all the parents and children of the world...
and especially to my very own... René-Charles!)

If I could
I'd protect you from the sadness in your eyes
Give you courage in a world of compromise
Yes, I would

If I could
I would teach you all the things I've never learned
And I'd help you cross the bridges that I've burned
Yes, I would

If I could
I would try to shield your innocence from time
But the part of life I gave you isn't mine
I've watched you grow
So I could let you go

If I could
I would help you make it through the hungry years
But I know that I can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could

If I live
In a time and place where you don't want to be
You don't have to walk along this road with me
My yesterday
Won't have to be your way

If I knew
I'd would try to change the world I brought to you to

(Isn't there and extra 'to' there?)

And there isn't very much that I can do
But I would
If I could...
oh baby... I just want to protect you
and help my baby through the hungry years
cause you're part of me
and if you ever... ever need
I said a shoulder to cry on
Or just someone to talk to
I'll be there... I'll be there
I didn't change your world
but I would
If I Could!
