Melody Gardot "If The Stars Were Mine" lyrics

If the stars were mine
I'd give them all to you
I'd pluck them down right from the sky
And leave it only blue
I will never let the sun forget to shine
upon your face
So when others would have rain clouds
you'd have only sunny days

If the stars were mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd put the stars right in a jar and give
them all to you

If the birds were mine
I'd tell them when to sing
I'd make them sing a sonnet when your
telephone would ring
I would put them there inside the square,
whenever you went out
So there'd always be sweet music
whenever you walk about

If the birds were mine
I'd tell you what I’d do
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and
make 'em sing for you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and
make 'em sing for you

If the world was mine
I'd paint it gold and green
I'd make the oceans orange from a
brilliant colour scheme
I will color all the mountains, make the
sky forever blue
So the world would be a painting and I'd
live inside with you

If the world was mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd wrap the world in ribbons and then
give it all to you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and
make 'em sing for you
I'd put those stars right in a jar and give
them all to you
