A Love Song For You

If I could write a love song
I'd write one for you.
I'd make it all about what went wrong
and what's right with you.

If I could compose an emotional ballad or two...
I'd sing them all and they
would be all about you.

If I believed that wishes could come true,
I'd wish I could write a love song for you.

I'm bored and mean. I'm incomplete.
I need you to step back a beat.
I feel alright. I ain't uptight.
I just never get love songs right.

But I miss you when I can't kiss you
and I need you when I don't see you
and I wish I could write a love song for you;

all about what went wrong
and what's right with you.

If I could compose an emotional ballad or two...
I'd sing them all and they would be all about you.
If I had a love song, I'd sing it for you.
