Only If… by Enya

3:17 produced by Nicky Ryan lyrics by Roma Ryan

lyrics

When there's a shadow, you follow the sun. When there is love, then you look for the one. And for the promises, there is the sky. ..And for the heavens are those who can fly. Chorus: If you really want to, you can hear me say Only if you want to will you find a way. If you really want to you can seize the day. Only if you want to will you fly away. When there's a journey, you follow a star. When there's an ocean, you sail from afar. And for the broken heart, there is the sky. ..And for tomorrow are those who can fly. Chorus (Ooh go doe bay mwa.) (Ooh go doe bay mwa.) Chorus Ah! Je voudrais voler comme un oiseau d'aile Ah! Je voudrais voler comme un oiseau d'aile, d'aile... (Ooh go doe bay mwa.) (Ooh go doe bay mwa.) Chorus If you really want to you can seize the day. Only if you want to will you fly away.

translation

(for the French verse) Ah! I would like to fly like a bird of wing, Ah! I would like to fly like a bird of wing, of wing...
A Japanese promotional issue contains what appears to be an early version of this track under the title "Only If You Want To". It does not include the French lyrics. In the first verse, instead of "you follow the sun", "you reach for the sun" is sung.
