If I Break

If I Break

Al Jarreau

You were the one
With schemes of plenty
I was your waiter
Waitin all the while
We were the two
They said could conquer any
Has anyone seen my missing smile

Almost, I almost made it
Said I almost forgot
How much you hurt me-
Oh you hurt me

If I break
It's only 'cause I saw
The saddest movie today
It's all these heartbreak stories
On the news today
It's only April raindrops
Tricklin' down my face
But it ain't because
I'm missin' you today

I ain't missin' you, no

Funny how time can heal
The hurt and wounded
Lovely how God protects
The young and fools
Makin' mistakes is
All so very human
Have to press on is what to do

Always I said I"d always love you
Always, I'll remember you in roses
And in all my prayers and invocations

If I break
It's only cause I saw
The saddest movie today
It's all these heartbreak stories
On the news today
It's only April raindrops
Tricklin' down my face
But it ain't because
I'm missin' you today
If I break
But t ain't because
I'm missin you today

Always--Well I will
Always and forever
Always--I'll remember you in roses
And every day of my life

If I break
It's only cause I saw
The saddest movie today
It's all these heartbeak stories
On the news today
It's only April raindrops
Tricklin' down my face
But it ain't because
I'm missin' you today
If I break

If I break I'm not missin' you
