Song #3: “If I Were In Love” is my very first love song. It’s pretty simple. But maybe that’s it’s charm. It’s still one of the songs that I have totally memorized…so that’s significant.But don’t be fooled by the song lyrics! I was probably deeply and painfully in love with someone who wasn’t exactly reciprocating the feeling…or maybe she didn’t even know I existed. I was definitely one of those shy guys who let approach anxiety stop them…but hey I was only 16! You got to start somewhere. Hope you enjoy this song! :o)
PLEASE! Use headphones or decent speakers to listen to this instead of your tinny little computer speakers. It’s recorded in crystal clear digital sound and the headphones really make a difference!

If I Were In Love | Song #3 | March 1977
If I were in love
I Might writing a love song
If you understood
You might sing along
If I was a lover
The kind that writes poems
You and I might make a home
Beyond the thoughts of older goals
Eyes held into each other’s souls
Together striving towards the whole
If you felt inside
That you had to be free
I would try not to disagree
And if you liked the clear days
And I liked the rain
I would try to accept the Sun’s flame
But even on those cloudy days
We’d lock each other in the gaze
That lover’s often use to embrace
But when that will be
Is so hard to see
That I will not let it trouble me
So I’ll just keep on living
Till the future is now
And someday we may meet somehow
La, la, la, la…
