"If I Only Had a Heart" as written by and E.y./arlen Harburg....
(Oooh yeah
If I only, if I only had, if I only had the heart
Only had the strength
If I only had)
Never want to be alone at night
Need someone there to hold me tight
That's the way it's always been, yeah
May be you that I been thinking of
Doesn't mean I want to be in love
No matter how it seems babe

So hold it right there
Give me a chance to explain
Baby don't be thinking I'm in love with you

If I only had the heart to tell you the way it is
If I only had the strength in me to resist
I would have told you baby right from the start
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)
If I only had the heart

(If I only, If I only had, If I only had the heart)

You say that I been on your mind
Baby I don't want to waste your time
You got to face the truth yeah
Every little thing we do together
Don't mean we're gonna last forever
And there's nothing I can do, no

So hold it right there
Give me a chance to explain
Baby don't be thinking I'm in love with you

If I only had the heart to tell you the way it is
If I only had the strength in me to resist
I would have told you baby right from the start
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)
If I only had the heart

If I only had the heart to tell you the way it is
If I only had the strength in me to resist
I would have told you baby right from the start
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)

I can't imagine 'cause I'm not the one and
I would have told you
If I only had the heart

Baby don't be thinking I'm in love with you

If I only had the heart
If I only had the heart
I only had the heart
I would have told you baby right from the start
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)
If I only had the heart

If I only had the heart to tell you the way it is
(If I only had the heart)
If I only had the strength in me to resist
I would have told you baby right from the start
{Baby right from the start)
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)
If I only had the heart

If I only had the heart to tell you the way it is
If I only had the strength in me to resist
I would have told you baby right from the start
Could have stopped you then from falling (oh)
If I only had the heart
