If I Were

If I were your lover now 
I wouldn't leave a stone unturned
I would just watch my bridges burn
As you lead me down the highway

If I were your lover now 
I wouldn't have to hold my pride
I would just let my spirit ride
As I lead you down the highway

Soldier boys vaingloriously 
Bleed for your captain's story
Tombstones catalogue the young dead
Like paperback books gone unread

If I were your lover now 
I wouldn't leave your heart alone
I would just make a house and home
From your whispers and your sweet moan

If I were your lover now 
I wouldn't have to cross your mind
We could just live on what we find 
In the moonlight and the sunshine

Soldier boys vaingloriously 
Bleed for your captain's story
Tombstones catalogue the young dead
Like paperback books gone unread

If I were your lover now 
I wouldn't leave a stone unturned
I would just watch my bridges burn
As you lead me down the highway

If I were your lover now 
You wouldn't have to cross your mind
We could just live on what we find 
In the moonlight and the sunshine
