If I Say...

Mark wrote the lyrics after waking up with them in his head. He didn’t know what to do with them so sent them, entitled If I Say, to Lady Jane to play with. Then Jip sent some music, called Jozzy, to Lady Jane to play with. Being a lazy mare, Lady Jane added Mark’s lyrics to Jip’s music, added a recorder instrumental and hey ho! If I Say… was born.

:)

Verse 1:
If I say stop you’ll stop, if I say go you’ll go
If I say green is blue, it’s true
If I say leaves are snow, that’s all you need to know
If you think love is true it’s ‘cause I let you
Chorus:
If I say, do you think about it (think about it)?
If I say, do you follow me (blindly)?
If I say, do you believe me - anyway?
If I say, are you listening (listening)?
If I say, do you hear me (hear me)?
If I say, do you heed my words - anyway?
Verse 2:
If I say there’s no pain, there’s no loss just gain
If I say heaven is hell, can you tell?
If I say peace is war, you won’t dare ignore
If I say starve the poor, then you will do
Chorus:
If I say, do you think about it (think about it)?
If I say, do you follow me (blindly)?
If I say, do you believe me - anyway?
If I say, are you listening (listening)?
If I say, do you hear me (hear me)?
If I say, do you heed my words - anyway?
Verse 3:
If I say lies don’t hurt, or make you feel like dirt
You’ll take it on the chin and accept it
I can make you sing and dance without a second glance
I can make you cry and scream if I want to
Instrumental - Recorder
Verse 4:
If I say birds don’t fly, you won’t wonder why
You’ll just get on with the lives that I’ve allowed you
If I say ice can’t melt, and music can’t be felt
If you think I’ll save you, then I may do
Outro:
If I say live you’ll live if I say die you’ll die
If I say fall you’ll fall
‘cause I’ve imagined it all, I’ve imagined it all, imagined it all
(Spoken) I’ve imagined it all
