  • Lyrics: Working at the fruit stand I hear the bells of your bicycle But I spin around too late This perfect peach in my hand Could never taste as sweet As anything from your plate The grace of your trajectory It always gets the best of me But I’d gladly give the best of me to you And if you weren’t always going so fast I’d tell you my plans We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne IF I COULD CATCH YOU We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space IF I COULD CATCH YOU I’d like to steal you Far away for an afternoon You’d forget those other boys I’d paddle your canoe Write a love song just for you Then you’ll know Those other boys just make noise Then all we care to own Is getting thrown in this old van Our home is in each other’s arms Well I know you got a gypsy soul Hey you’re not alone We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne IF I COULD CATCH YOU We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space IF I COULD CATCH YOU Snoopin’ ‘round town like a private eye Asking everybody, who, what, where, when Why are you hiding, girl You should be beside me, girl I’d call you if you had a phone I’d be your live-in chaperone You could be my jelly roll IF I COULD CATCH YOU We would dip our toes in the fountains of Rome sipping champagne IF I COULD CATCH YOU We would fly so high we could watch the city lights from outer space IF I COULD CATCH YOU copyright 2011 Something Organic (ASCAP)
