If I Could Catch You - Lyrics

IF I COULD CATCH YOU
(Joe Slyzelia)

featured on the album The Straight Goods

Working at the fruit stand
I hear the bells of your bicycle
But I spin around too late
This perfect peach in my hand
Could never taste as sweet
As anything from your plate
The grace of your trajectory
It always gets the best of me
But I’d gladly give the best of me to you
And if you weren’t always going so fast
I’d tell you my plans

We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne
IF I COULD CATCH YOU
We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space
IF I COULD CATCH YOU

I’d like to steal you
Far away for an afternoon
You’d forget those other boys
I’d paddle your canoe
Write a love song just for you
Then you’ll know
Those other boys just make noise
Then all we care to own
Is getting thrown in this old van
Our home is in each other’s arms
Well I know you got a gypsy soul
Hey you’re not alone

We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne
IF I COULD CATCH YOU
We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space
IF I COULD CATCH YOU

Snoopin’ ‘round town like a private eye
Asking everybody, who, what, where, when
Why are you hiding, girl
You should be beside me, girl
I’d call you if you had a phone
I’d be your live-in chaperone
You could be my jelly roll
IF I COULD CATCH YOU

We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne
IF I COULD CATCH YOU
We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space
IF I COULD CATCH YOU
