I
A brand new baby was born yesterday
          II
Just in time
I
Papa cried, baby cried
                          II
Said your tears are like mine
I
I heard some words
From a friend on the phone
                     II
That didnt sound so good
I
The doctor gave him two weeks to live
            III            IV
Id give him more if I could
                      IV
You know that I would now
                IV
If only I could
                      IV
You know that I would now
            I
If only I could


Down the middle drops one more
Grain of sand
They say that
New life makes losing life easier to understand
Words are kind
They helped ease the mind
Of this, my old friend
And though you gotta go

We'll keep a piece of your soul
What goes out
What goes in

You know that I would now
If only I could
You know that I would now
If only I could

E:-------7--5...
