I’d Like to Be
I’d like to be, be like the wind, singing around
I’d like to be, be like the wind, dancing around
Like the wind touch everything, just like the wind
I’d like to be, be like a cloud, floating by
I’d like to be, be like a cloud, in the sunshine
A cloud that seeks your haunting face, just like a cloud
I’d like to be, be like a flame, a forest fire
I’d like to be, be like a flame, of the bonfire
Like the flame rising t’ward you, just like the flame
I’d like to be, be guitar, a singing heart
I’d like to be, be guitar, a throbbing heart
Like the guitar that you may feel-
With your soul.
