Lyrics
If you were mine
I could be a ruler of kings
And if you were mine
I could do such wonderful things

I'd say to a star
Stop where you are
Light up my lover's way
And every star above you

Would obey, say
If you were mine
I would live for your love alone
To kneel at your shrine
I would give up all that I own

Yes even my heart
Even my life
I'd trade it all for you
And think I was lucky too
If you were mine
