If I Had Only A Chance Lyrics

If I Had Only A Chance - BZN

It happened on a cold December morning

 

Together with my little sister

 

I was waiting at the harbour

 

To pick up my daddy

 

He was returning from the sea

 

To celebrate his birthday with us

 

The winds increased to gale force

 

And the thundery clouds darkened the sky

 

Then an old fisherman told

 

Of a boat at sea

 

Sending out an S O S

 

We've been waiting so long

 

Oh daddy what went wrong

 

How we need you now

 

And beg you please come home

 

If I had only a chance

To see your face again

 

Tears that I cried

They would blind me

 

On and on

 

If I had only a chance

To hear your voice again

 

Words that you whispered

Would seem to be a song

 

Time cures all things

 

And years are passing by

 

But still I can hear my sister cry

 

I've been waiting so long

 

Oh daddy what went wrong

 

How I need you now

 

I beg you please come home

 

If I had only a chance

To see your face again

 

Tears that I cried they would blind me

 

On and on

 

If I had only a chance

To hear your voice again

 

Words that you whispered

Would seem to be a song

 

His boat never returned

 

It's still missing

 

In spite of several

Search operations

 

The sailors were never found again

 

They were certainly lost in the Atlantic

 

If I had only a chance

To hear your voice again

 

Words that you whispered

 

Would seem to be a song
