If I Only Had the Words (to Tell You)  Billy Joel

If I Only Had the Words (To Tell You)
[D]In[E]tr[A]o[D] [E] [A] [C] [E7]
If I o[A]nly had the wo[A/C#]rds to te[D]ll you
[A/C#] If you o[Bm7]nly had the time to unde[G7]rstand[E7]
Though I k[A]now it wouldn?t [A/C#]change your fe[D]elings
[A/C#] And I k[Bm7]now you?ll carry [E7]on the best you c[A]an[C] [E7]
If I [A]only had the u[A/C#]rge to te[D]ll you
[A/C#] If you o[Bm7]nly knew how hard it is to s[G7]ay[E7]
When the simp[A]le lines have [A/C#]all been take[D]n
[A/C#] And the ra[Bm7]dio rep[E7]eats them every d[A]ay[G7]
If I n[C]ever find the s[C/E]ong to s[F]ing you
[C/E] If you a[Dm7]lways find it hard to co[Bb7]mprehend[G7]
Well you k[C]now there wouldn?t[C/E] be much mea[F]ning
[C/E] If [Dm7]I had to sing those tir[G7]ed words again[C]
[E7]Life[Am]... goes [E7]on and [Am]on
And toni[G]ght...[C] will s[G]oon be go[C]ne
But if we [Fmaj7]try[Em7]
We can be s[Dm7]ure[Gsus4] [G] [Gsus2] [G]
If I [C]only had the w[C/E]ords to te[F]ll you
[C/E] If you o[Dm7]nly had the time to unde[Bb7]rstand[G7]
But I [C]only have these [C/E]arms to h[F]old you
[C/E] And it?s [Dm7]all that you can [G7]ask of any m[C]an[F] [G]
[C]Laa l[F]aa la la l[Bb]a l[Dm]aa la la [G]la
