​If I Had The World To Give

This song is by Grateful Dead and appears on the album Shakedown Street (1978).

If I had the world to give
I'd give it to you, long as you live
Would you let it fall
Or hold it all in your arms?

If I had a song to sing
I'd sing it to you as long as you live
Lullaby
Or maybe a plain serenade
Wouldn't you laugh, dance, and cry or be afraid
At the change you made

I may not have the world to give to you
But maybe I have a tune or two
Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you
Could I ever give this world to you

But I will give what love I have to give
I will give what love I have to give
I will give what love I have to give
Long as I live

If I had a star to give
I'd give it to you, long as you live
Would you have the time
To watch it shine, watch it shine
Or ask for the moon and heaven too?
I'd give it to you

Well maybe I've got no star to spare
Or anything fine or even rare
Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you
Could I ever give this world to you
