If It Would Make You Happy...

If it would make you happy,
I'd fingerpaint the skies,
With every single reason,
Why I'll love you all my life.

And if I were a princess,
I'd abdicate my throne,
If it would make you happy,
And, with you, I'd build our home.

And if you needed silence,
I'd sit and hold your hand,
If it would make you happy,
I'd never ask, just understand.

And if I were the reason,
You always had to cry,
If it would make you happy...
I'd even say goodbye.
