If I were the sun
I could kiss your skin and clothes
I’d illuminate your beauty
I’d bring gladness to your soul
And I would wake you every morning
With the hard work of my love
I’d love to be your lover
But I’d settle for the sun

If I were the wind
I would whisper in your ear
I would bless you with my silence
Then run my fingers through your hair
I could be cold and make you closer
To the ones you’re standing with
I’d love to be your lover
But I’d welcome being the wind

If I were the ground
I would hold you high above
I’d raise daisies for your pleasure
Trees would testify my love
And I would guard your body in the soil
When your soul was heaven bound
I’d love to be your lover
But I’d be glad to be the ground

I’m sure this world’s a wonder
For those who wander hand in hand
And I know this world was built for loving
But I am not sure I am
Oh mother, make me elemental
So she can feel my perfect love
Because my hands, my mouth, my eyes, my mind
Could never be enough
