You Could If You Would

You Could If You Would

You could miss the water
before the well runs dry
You could taste the tears
before you feel the cry
You could put the cart
before the horse
and you could eat desert
before the main course

You could put the Genie
back in the bottle
and you could make yourself fall
back in love with me

You could correct the lean
of the Tower of Pisa
You could put a frown
on the Mona Lisa
You could start a fire
with a dying ember
and you could forget
before you remember

You could put the Genie
back in the bottle
and you could make yourself fall
back in love with me
make yourself fall
make yourself fall
make yourself fall
back in love with me
