If I Had My Way Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Long ago and far away
Before the world had come to this
I took for granted how my life would be
Assuming that my freedom would be free
Verse 2
Before these evening shadows fell
I reveled in the light of day
I rarely ever cried, my patience wasn't tried
And heroes never died
Verse 3
But if I had my way
Things would be different
Danger wouldn't come from a sky of blue
Choices would be clear
Verse 4
And strangers would be kinder
Love a little blinder
As it saved the day
If I had my way
Verse 5
Every now and then it seems
We live our lives to such extremes
Racing all around, never homeward bound
Losing what we've found
Verse 6
But if I had my way
Things would be different
No one would believe that a lie was true
Choices would be clear
Verse 7
And wisdom would be heeded
Warnings never needed
This is what I'd pray
If I had my way
Verse 8
The milk of human kindness
Would seek us out and find us
And color all the words we say
Verse 9
And hearts would come alive
Instead of breaking
No one would believe that a lie was true
Angels would appear
Verse 10
Children would be cherished
Hope would never parish
Faith would not betray
If I had my way
