IF THOSE LIPS COULD ONLY SPEAK (Chas Ridgewell / Will Godwin) Will Godwin Also recorded by: Foster & Allen; Peter Dawson; Slim Dusty; Grand Dominion Jazz Band. Chorus If those lips could only speak If those eyes could only see If those beautiful golden tresses Were here in reality Could I only take your hand As I did when you took my name But it's only a beautiful picture In a beautiful golden frame He stood in a beautiful mansion Surrounded by riches untold As he gazed at a beautiful picture That hung in a frame of gold Was a picture of a lady So beautiful young and fair To this beautiful lifelike picture He murmured in sad despair Repeat Chorus With all his great powers and his riches, He knows he can never replace One thing in the mansion that's absent His wife's tender smiling face And each time he sees her picture These same words he'll always say "All my wealth I would freely forfeit And toil for you night and day" Repeat Chorus He stood there and gazed on that picture And slumbering forgetting all pain For there in that mansion of fancy She stood by his side again His lips then softly murmured The name of his once sweet bride With his eyes fixed on that picture He awoke from his sleep and he cried (Contributed by den-mary - July 2006) (Source: Alberts Album of Modern Waltzes)
