If I Built You A Temple
If I built you a temple

from the bricks of my heart

Would you stay there forever

never to tear us apart

If I gave you a mountain of gold

would you beg me to let you in, ooh would you?

To share our dreams of the days to come

and to find a place where we both will run ooh yeah!

If I built you a temple

yeah would you beg me to let you in

If I built you a temple

Would you try to stay within oh no!

If I built you a temple

The soul I give is all I've got

If I gave you my soul to keep

and to treasure it with pride

Would you stay in these arms girl

And never to let it slide

If I built you a staircase

to the heavens within

would you share the light

under garden trees

to walk a million miles

in the land of the free ooh yeah!

If I built you a temple

would you beg me to let you in

If I built you a temple

Would you try to stay within

If I built you a temple

Ooh no, the soul I give is all I've got yeah!

You know it's all I've got

Through you're a million miles

away from me

our love's so close as any love can be

and when I'm feeling down

I know you'll be there yeah!

Like a flower born in the early spring

Just I need of love and the gifts you bring

So sister above - I think I'm in love

yeah If I built you a temple

would you beg me to let you in

If I built you a temple

Would you try to stay within oh no!

If I built you a temple

The soul I give is all I've got yeah!

If I built you a temple

would you beg me to let you in

If I built you a temple

Would you try to stay within oh no!

If I built you a temple

The soul I give is all I've got
