Lyrics
Were I A Painter Music/Lyrics: S. Domer/S. Loveall © 2016 Were I a painter, an illusionist A wielder of the brush, an allusionist Were I a painter, an artist I would sketch these scenes so etched behind my eyes On a canvas I would bring them all to life I would coax each pastel oil To capture the teal of the water Each belly of turquoise Each wink of topaz Each smoldering ember lies Deep in your cappuccino eyes Were I a painter, an illusionist A wielder of the brush, an allusionist Were I a painter, an artist I would sketch these scenes so etched behind my eyes On a canvas I would bring them all to life I'll paint you lying on a bed of Sunset and Vines Hollywood and Tuscany In bed with precious dreams With all their majesty Of tinsel, sun, and soil That I would capture with these oils Were I a painter, an illusionist A wielder of the brush, an allusionist Were I a painter, an artist I would sketch these scenes so etched behind my eyes On a canvas I would bring them all to life Were I a painter, an illusionist A wielder of the brush, an allusionist Were I a painter, an artist I would sketch these scenes so etched behind my eyes On a canvas I would bring them all to life On a canvas I would bring them all to life
