If I Had My Way
Long ago and far away

Before the world had come to this

I took for granted how my life would be

Assuming that my freedom wiould be free



Before these eil shadows fell

I reveled in the light of day

I rarely ever cried

My patience wasn't tried

And heroes never died



But if I had my way, things would be different

Danger wouldn't come from a sky of blue

Choices would be clear

Strangers would be kinder

Love a little blinder

As it saved the day

If I had my way



Every now and then it seems

We live our lives to such extremes

Racing all around, never homeward bound

Losing what we found



But if I had my way, things would be different

No one would believe that a lie was true

Choices would be clear

Wisdom would be heeded

Warnings never needed

This is what I pray

If I had my way



The milk of human kindness

Will seek us out and find us

And color all the words we say



And hearts would come alive, instead of breaking

No one would believe that a lie was true

Angels would appear

Children would be cherished

Hope would never perish

Faith would not be tried

If I had my way
