If only (quartetto)

ARIEL
If only you could know
The things I long to say
If only I could tell you
What i wish i could convey
It’s in my every glance
My heart’s an open book
You’d see it all at once
If only you would look

If only you could glimpse
The feeling that I feel
If only you would notice
What I’m dying to reveal
The dreams I can’t declare
The needs I can’t deny
You’d understand them all
If only you would try

All my secrets, you would learn them
All my longings, you’d return them
Then the silence would be broken
Not a word would need be spoken…

PRINCIPE ERIC
What is it about her that’s
So wonderfully and possibly familiar
Why do I feel dizzy in a way
I’ve only felt but once before
How come when she looks at me
It seems like time stops moving
Almost like the way it did
That day upon the shore!
But that voice

ARIEL
If only ears were true
If only for a while

PRINCIPE ERIC
Ah, that voice!

ARIEL
If only you would notice
How I ache behind my smile

PRINCIPE ERIC
Where’s that voice?

ARIEL
I guess you never will
I guess it doesn’t show
But if i never find a way
To tell you so
Oh, what I would give
If only you could know…

SEBASTIAN
Bless you child. Tomorrow, the Prince will have his pick of any Princess in the land.
How can a little mermaid compete with that?

If only i knew how
I’d make him see the light
If only it were up to me
This all would turn out right
And if I only could
I’d tell you what I’d do
I’d simply wave me claw
And make your dreams come true
And wouldn’t that surprise you
If you only knew?

RE TRITONE
How could she just suddenly
Completely disappear into thin water?
It’s been two whole days
And I Don’t know where she has gone!

PRINCIPE ERIC
Oh, that voice!

RE TRITONE
If only you could know

SEBASTIAN
If only I could help

PRINCIPE ERIC
Where’s that voice?

ARIEL
If only there were time
I know we’d kiss at last

PRINCIPE ERIC
That voice!

RE TRITONE
If only you’d come back
I’ll change my ways

SEBASTIAN
Just one more day
For that kiss to come

ARIEL
But time keeps racing forward
And our moment’s almost past

RE TRITONE
I’ll try to understand

ARIEL
It has to happen now

SEBASTIAN
I’d give my life up
To make it happen

RE TRITONE
I’d give my timber low
I should have started listening
To you long ago

PRINCIPE ERIC
How I wish that girl could
Have been this one

ARIEL
There’s only one more day
Until I have to go

PRINCIPE ERIC
If only…

ARIEL, SEBASTIAN, E RE TRITONE
Oh, what I would give
If only you could know

PRINCIPE ERIC
And at the ball, what will accumb?
Maybe I’ll find that voice
But I’ll loose her…

ARIEL
If only…

SEBASTIAN
If only…

RE TRITONE
If only…
