Lyrics to If There Is Something

Lyrics to the song If There Is Something as recorded by Roxy Music.

(Ferry)

If there is something that I might find
Look around corners try to find peace of mind,
I say Where would you go if you were me?
Try to keep a straight course not easy

Somebody special looking at me
A certain reaction we find what should it try to be?,
I mean if there are many meaning the same
Being specific is just a game

I would do anything for you I would climb mountains
I would swim all the oceans blue
I would walk a thousand miles reveal my secrets
More than enough for me to share
I would put roses round our door sit in the garden
Growing potatoes by the score

Shake your hair girl with your ponytail
Takes me right back (when you were young)
Threw your precious gifts into the air
Watched them fall down (when you were young)
Lift up your feet and put them on the ground
You used to walk upon (when you were young)
Lift up your feet and put them on the ground
The hills were higher (when you were young)
Lift up your feet and put them on the ground
The trees were taller (when you were young)
Lift up your feet and put them on the ground
The grass was greener (when you were young)
Lift up your feet and put them on the ground
You used to walk upon (when you were young)

Album Track

If There Is Something is a hybrid of country chromatic sliding guitar and spacious moog/mellotron instrumental passages which were extended during live performances. The song was played on all the first few Roxy Tours but remained unplayed from 1975 until the reunion tour in 2001. The song also formed part of  the set for the 2010 and 2011 tour. The BBC sessions aired a performance over 11 minutes long (18th February 1972) and it also appears on Roxy's live album Viva! Roxy Music.

David Bowie recorded the song with Tin Machine on the album Tin Machine 2
The song was brought back into the limelight when it was used in The Daniel Craig Movie 'Flashbacks Of A Fool' in 2008.
