"If I Can't Love Her" lyrics - JOSH GROBAN

"If I Can't Love Her"

And in my twisted fate
There's not the slightest trace
Of anything that even hints at kindness
And from my tortured shape
No comfort, no escape
I see but deep within is utter blindness
Hopeless, as my dream dies
As the time flies, love a lost illusion
Helpless, unforgiven
Cold and driven
To this sad conclusion

No beauty could move me
No goodness improve me
No power on earth, if I can't love her
No passion could reach me
No lesson could teach me
How I could have loved her and make her love me too
If I can't love her, then who

Long ago I should have seen
All the things I could have been
Careless and unthinking
I moved onward

[Final Chorus:]
No pain could be deeper
No life could be cheaper
No point anymore, if I can't love her
No spirit could win me
No hope left within me
Hope I could have loved her
And that she's set me free

But it's not to be
If I can't love her
Let the world be done with me
