"If I Could" as written by Steve Bogard and Brett James....
Take me to another place, she said
Take me to another time
Run with me across the oceans
Float me on a silver cloud

If I could I would, but I don't know how
If I could I would, but I don't know how
If I could I would and I'd take you now

Stay with me till time turns over
I want to feel my feet leave the ground
Take me where the whispering breezes
Can lift me up and spin me around

If I could I would...
Hear you laughing as we go
Flipping backward through the doors and through the windows
I'm melting into nothing

If I could I would, but I don't know how
If I could I would, but I don't know how
If I could I would and I'd take you now

    General CommentShe's the lady that sings in this song..she also plays the fiddle. I love this song, it was the first song I forced on people who didn't like phish to convert them. It didn't work, but I think they're deaf
