​If

This song is by Eric Martin and appears on the album Destroy All Monsters (2004).

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you
The words will never show
The you I've come to know

If a face can launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go
There's no one home but you
You all that's left me too
And when my love
For life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me

If a man could be in two places
At one time I will be with you
Tomorrow and today
Beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving
Spinning slowly
And down to die
I'd spend the end with you
When the world was through

Then one by one
The stars will all go out
Then you and I
Would simply fly away

If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I
Why can't I paint you
