MAKE IT SHINE

If I could only make it better 

I would                                                          

If I could only make it stronger                         

I would                                                            

If I could only leave behind                     

Those spoken words of mine                         

And make it all shine!                                    

                                                                        

If I could only make it harder   

I would                                                            

If I could only make it brighter

I think I should

Raise myself above it

And see it the way you saw it

It might’ve bought us some time

And made it all shine!

If I could only be that man

 

And off and on I think of yesterday

I refuse to see it wasted

With the two of us enshrined in love sublime

The sweetest one I’ve ever tasted

 

[Trumpet solo]

 

If I had only taken one step

At a time

If I had only tried to see

The other side

Reaching out my hand

Across the wasted land

To help us understand

To make it all shine!

If I could only be that man

 

And off and on I think of yesterday

I refuse to see it wasted

With the two of us enshrined in love sublime

The sweetest one I’ve ever tasted

 

One day I am sure we will listen

To the words we said today  

Someday day I know we’ll be missing 

Those days that came our way
