You Know I Would

Everything changes as time rearranges
But everything stays the same
Everyone’s running, there tryin’ to find something
When they get there, wondering why they came

Even you with your hungry eyes
You’ll search to find a reason why
What seems so clear fades with each passing year
What you don’t know is all you need to get by

If I could give you the stars in a summer sky
If I could take all your dreams and give them flight
I can’t give you everything, but if I could
You know I would

Like a slow moving train in the driving rain
Moves in silence through a sleepless night
We just struggle along, what doesn’t kill makes us strong
I can’t see it, but I feel it’s in sight

Even the promise of a big blue sky
Gives up to night without a hint of goodbye
But tomorrow’s sun shines in our hearts, in our minds
In the faith that all your money can’t buy

If I could give you the stars in a summer sky
If I could take all your dreams and give them flight
I can’t give you everything, but if I could
You know I would

Can you remember all those promises made
How we took our chances and the price we paid
Well I’m right here beside you
So darling don’t you be afraid

As new flags unfurl ‘round a changing world
See the flames dance ‘round the colours of old
But what seems like and end always comes ‘round again
After all the old lies have been told

If I could give you the stars in a summer sky
If I could take all your dreams and give them flight
I can’t give you everything, but if I could
You know I would
