If I Could

If I Could

Jack Johnson

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 doctors gave him two weeks to live
I'd give him more if I could

You know I would now if only I could
You know I would now if only I could

Down the middle drops one more grain of sand
They say that new life makes losin' life easier to understand
Words are kind they help ease the mind I miss my old friend
And thou you gotta go we'll keep a piece of your soul
One goes out, one comes in

You know I would now if only I could
You know I would now if only I could
