Lyrics of What If

English (Original)

What if I could change the path of time What if I had the power to decide What if I could make us unify
If I If I
What if we would open up the doors What if we could help each other more What if i could make you all believe
If we If we

What if we all Opened our arms
What if we Came together as one
What if we aimed To stop the alarms
What if we chose to Bury our guns
Why don’t we always Reach out to those
Who need us the most
Together we can change the path of time Together we have power to decide The answer lies within our hearts and minds
Together Together
Together we can make a better place On this little island out in space Together we can change the world forever
Let’s unite and make a change Let’s unite and write a new page Come on sinners come on saints Have faith
