Midge Ure – If I Was (1985)

If I was von Midge Ure wehte gestern nacht sehnsüchtig und leise durch die laue Nachtluft von einer entfernten Jukebox an mein Ohr. Eine wunderschöne Synthie-Pop-Hymne des Glasgowers. Mochte ich schon immer. Der Text:

IF I WAS – [1985]

If I was a better man
Would fellow men take me to their hearts
If I was a stronger man
Carrying the weight of popular demand
Tell me would that alarm her
I’d never harm her at all

If I was a soldier
Captive arms I’d lay before her
If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I’d sail to her

If I was a wiser man
Would other men reach out and touch me
If I was a kinder man
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease her
I want to please her again

If I was a poet
All my love in burning words I would show it
If I was her lover
Her eyes in kisses I would cover

Come here my baby
Oh they can’t touch you now
I’ll keep you safe and warm
I’ll never leave you at all
Come here my baby
Oh they won’t touch you
Dishing up love for a hungry world
Tell me would that appease you
I want to please you again

If I was a soldier
Captive arms I’d lay before her
If I was a sailor
Seven oceans I’d sail to her
If I was a painter
I’d paint a world that couldn’t taint her
If I was her leader
On food of love from above I would feed her
If I was a poet
All my love in burning words I would show it
