If We Had Wings

Bill Lloyd/Janis Ian

I can't dance forever
thinking we're together
Waiting for the words that never come
I need something more than
waltzing 'round the floor when
my heart's aching to know you are the one

We better sit the next one out
We've got a lot to talk about
between the diamonds and the doubt

If we had wings,
where would we fly?
Would you choose
the safety of the ground
or touch the sky?
if we had wings

There's no use pretending
we're a happy ending
when we don't know where to begin
Will I ever know how
far you want to go now?
Can you find our song upon the wind?

After all it's only fear
ties us down and keeps us here
as our tomorrows disappear

If we had wings,
where would we fly?
Would you choose
the safety of the ground
or touch the sky?

Seen from the air,
our world's too small
But I would choose
the safety of your arms
And have it all
If we had wings
