If Love Was A River Lyrics

by Alan Jackson

If love was a river and I was a drowning man
Would you get in the water?
Would you lend me a hand
If love was a river, would you sit on the land?

If love was a mountain, high above this town
Would you climb to the top?
Would you never look down?
If love was a mountain, would you go around?

Love rarely knocks
So many times upon your door
And Heaven only knows
If it will come back anymore

If love was a firefly, sitting in your hand
Would you laugh when it twinkled?
Let it go again
If love was a firefly, would you understand?

If love was a party with everyone you know
Would you dance if I asked you?
Would you smile and say "No"?
If love was a party, would you even go?

Love rarely knocks
So many times upon your door
And Heaven only knows
If it will come back anymore

If love was a fast train on a one-way track
Would you turn in your ticket?
Would you never look back?
If love was a fast train, would you even pack?
