If I Was

This song is by Ian McDonald and appears on the album Drivers Eyes (1999).

If I was a poet
I'd know what to say
If I were an actor
I'd act the right way
But when you walk by
I just go up on my lines

If I were a painter
Repainting the world
Then you'd get the picture
And I'd get the girl
But whatever I do
I draw a blank when it comes to you

Trying to get you out of my mind
Climbing walls all day and all night
How long can I go on
Being right where you belong

If I were a singer
You'd listen to me
Yes, if I were an artist
I would be free
It's so hard to express
Lost my voice long ago, I guess

Deep down I know I'm on track
But I've been holding back
I'm dying to make my move
Don't you know how much I want you?

But whatever I do
I draw a blank when it comes to you

If I was a poet
I'd know what to say
If I were an actor
I'd act the right way
But when you walk by
I just go up on my lines

Na na ra na na ra

Na na ra na na
Na na ra na na ah
