If I Loved You Lyrics

*Julie*
But somehow I can see
Just exactly how I'd be-

If I loved you
Time and time again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles I'd go
Longin' to tell you
But afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by
Soon you'd leave me
Off you would go in the mist of day
Never, never to know how I loved you
If I loved you

*Billy*
Well, anyway, you mean you don't love me.
That's what you said, isn't it?

*Julie*
Yes!
I can smell 'em, can you, ah
The blossoms. The wind brings them down

*Billy*
There ain't much wind tonight... Hardly any.
You can't hear a sound, not the turn of a leaf
Nor the fall of a wave hittin' the sand
The tide's creepin up on the beach like a thief
Afraid to be caught stealin the land
On a night like this I start to wonder
What life is all about

*Julie*
And I always say two heads are better than one to
Figure it out

*Billy*
I don't need you, and don't need anybody helpin' me
Well, I got it figured out for myself
We're not important. What are we?
A couple of specks o' nuthin'
Look up there...
There's a hell of a lotta stars in the sky
And the sky's so big the sea looks small
And two little people, you and I
We don't count at all
You're a funny kid, you know?
I don't remember meetin' a girl like you.
Hey, you're trying to get me to marry you?

*Julie*
No!

*Billy*
Then what's puttin into my head baby?
You're different all right, I know what it is...
You have doped me with that little kid's face, right?
You've adjusted me
I'd wonder what it'd be like...

*Julie*
What?

*Billy*
Nothin
No, I know what it'd be like
It'd be awful! I can just see myself-

Kinda scrawny and pale
Pickin at my food
And love sick like any other guy
I'd throw away my sweater and dress up like a dude
In a dicky and a collar and a tie
If I loved you

*Julie*
But you don't

*Billy*
No, I don't!
But somehow I can see
Just exactly how I'd be
If I loved you
Time and time again I would try to say
All I'd want you to know
If I loved you
Words wouldn't come in an easy way
Round in circles I'd go
Longin to tell you
But afraid and shy
I'd let my golden chances pass me by
Soon you'd leave me
Off you'd go in the mist of day
Never, never to know
How I loved you
If I loved you

Aha... I'm not the kind of fella to marry anybody!
No, even if a girl was foolish enough to want me to
I wouldn't!

*Julie*
Don't worry about it, Billy

*Billy*
Who's worried?

*Julie*
You're right about there bein' no wind
The blossoms are comin down by themselves
Just they're in time to I reckon.
