If I had the world to give
I'd give it to you long as you live
Would you let it fall
Or hold it all in your arms?

If I had a song to sing
I'd sing it to you as long as you live
Lullaby or maybe a plain serenade

Wouldn't you laugh, dance and cry or be afraid
At the change you made
I may not have the world to give to you
But maybe I have a tune or two

Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you?
Could I ever give this world to you?

But I will give what love I have to give
I will give what love I have to give
I will give what love I have to give
Long as I live

If I had a star to give
I'd give it to you long as you live
Would you have the time
To watch it shine, watch it shine?

Or ask for the moon and heaven too?
I'd give it to you
Well maybe I've got no star to spare
Or anything fine or even rare

Only if you let me be your world
Could I ever give this world to you?
Could I ever give this world to you?
