If I could, I'd protect you and teach you all that I learned through life.
This song was recorded by many artists in the past, including Barbra Streisand.
Available on:
A new day... Live in Las Vegas(C)
Miracle... a celebration of new life

(I'd like to dedicate this next song
to all the parents and children of the world...
and especially to my very own... René-Charles!)

If I could I'd protect you from the sadness in your eyes
Give you courage in a world of compromise
Yes, I would

If I could I would teach you all the things I've never learned
And I'd help you cross the bridges that I've burned
Yes, I would

If I could I would try to shield your innocence from time
But the part of life I gave you isn't mine
I've watched you grow
So I could let you go

If I could I would help you make it through the hungry years
But I know that I can never cry your tears
But I would
If I could

If I live In a time and place where you don't want to be
You don't have to walk along this road with me
My yesterday
Won't have to be your way

If I knew I'd have tried to change the world I brought to you to
And there isn't very much that I can do
But I would
If I could...
oh baby... mummy wants to protect you
and help my baby through the hungry years
it's part of me
and if you ever... ever need
sad shoulder to cry on
I'm just someone to talk to
I'll be there... I'll be there
I didn't change your world
but I would
If I could!
