If I Could Tell You (The Communards)

TIME WILL SAY NOTHING BUT I TOLD YOU SO, TIME ONLY KNOWS THE PRICE WE HAVE TO PAY; IF I COULD TELL YOU I WOULD LET YOU KNOW. IF WE SHOULD WEEP WHEN CLOWNS PUT ON THEIR SHOW, IF WE SHOULD STUMBLE WHEN MUSICIANS PLAY, TIME WILL SAY NOTHING BUT I TOLD YOU SO. THERE ARE NO FORTUNES TO BE TOLD, ALTHOUGH, BECAUSE I LOVE YOU MORE THAN I CAN SAY, IF I COULD TELL YOU I WOULD LET YOU KNOW. THE WINDS MUST COME FROM SOMEWHERE WHEN THEY BLOW, THERE MUST BE REASONS WHY THE LEAVERS DECAY; TIME WILL SAY NOTHING BUT I TOLD YOU SO. PERHAPS THE ROSES REALLY WANT TO GROW, THE VISION SERIOUSLY INTENDS TO STAY; IF I COULD TELL YOU I WOULD LET YOU KNOW. SUPPOSE THE LIONS ALL GET UP AND GO, AND ALL THE BROOKS AND SOLDIERS RUN AWAY; WILL TIME SAY NOTHING BUT I TOLD YOU SO? IF I COULD TELL YOU I WOULD LET YOU KNOW.
