If You Could See Me Now

Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now

It was February 14th, Valentine’s Day
The roses came but they took you away
Tattooed on my arm is a charm to disharm all the harm
Gotta keep myself calm but the truth is you’re gone
And I’ll never get to show you these songs
Dad, you should see the tours that I’m on
I see you standing there next to Mom
Always singing along yeah on and on

And there are days when I’m losing my faith
Because the man wasn’t good, he was great
He’d say music was the home for your pain and explain, I was young, he would say

Take that rage
Put it on the page
Take the page to the stage
Blow the roof of the place
Yeah I’m trying to make you proud
Do everything you did
I hope you’re up there with God saying that’s my kid

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand I’m disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now

Oh if you could see me now

If you could see me now, would you recognise me?
Would you pat me on the back or would you criticise me?
Would you follow every line on my tear-stained face?
Put your hand on my heart that was cold as the day you were taken away

I know it’s been a while but I can see you clear as day
Right now I wish I could hear you say
I drank too much and I smoke too much
But if you can’t see me now that’s shit to us

You could say that I won’t know a winner till it’s crossed me
Like I won’t know real love till I’ve loved and I’ve lost it
So if you’ve lost a sister, someone’s lost a Mom
And if you’ve lost a Dad then someone’s lost a son
And they’re all missing out
And they’re all missing out
So if you get a second to look down on me now
Mom, Dad, I’m just missing you now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand I’m disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now

Oh...
Oh...
Would you call me a sneak or a sinner?
Would you love me a loser or winner?
Oh...
Oh...
When I see your face in the mirror
We look so alike that it makes me shiver

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand I’m disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now

I still look for your face in the crowd
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now
Would you stand I’m disgrace or take a bow?
Oh if you could see me now
Oh if you could see me now

If you could see, you could see me now.
