If

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d live a life far more true.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d be more honest with you.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d jump off the cliff like a bird.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d shout until I was heard.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d stamp out hate on the earth.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

sometimes I’d put myself first.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d follow a path that is clear. 

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d keep those promises dear.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I’d sing to the stars and the moon.

If I could just pluck up the courage,

I really would come into bloom.

And if I ever have enough courage,

I’ll do what I’m destined to do.

When I do have enough courage,

I’ll take you along with me to.

Now that I have enough courage,

I’m making the changes I should.

I really do have enough courage,

to bring to my life all that’s good.
