If I Could Change Your Mind - Lyrics by Alan Parson Project, The


Lyrics


(lead vocal - lesley duncan)

I prefer to spend my time in solitary ways
Keeping myself to myself
Can't pretend that it's been easy since you went away
Living with somebody else

If you should change your mind
If you should turn around and look behind
If you could see me the way i used to be
At the risk of bringing back the sorrow and despair
I would do it all again
Holding on to memories and pretending not to care
Knowing that the show was soon to end
If only i could change your mind
If only you would change
If i had the chance i'd do it all again
I would do it all again

I remember windy shores on menancholy days
Drifting along with the tide
And the joy of simple things and ordinary ways
Taking it all in my stride

If you should change your mind
If i could let you see what lies behind
If you could see need me the way it used to be

Even for the moment of the happy times we shared
Living in my dreams since then
At the risk of losing only castles in the air
Come with me and we can try again
Oh, if i could change your mind

Can't pretend it's been lonely since you went away
Oh, if i could change your mind
