lyrics

If I could…
If I could put every love song in the world inside a pear,
For you to shake up when you feel the tear,
I would.

Then I’d have…
I’d have music inside me, and rhythm and juice,
Beans for the shaking, and fruit for the taking,
And everything open and groovy and loose,
I would.

If I could…
If I could string all your blues up with amethyst pearl,
Clasp you in gold, like a gardener’s girl,
I would.

I don’t believe…
I don’t believe in my personal substance,
to make it all happen for you.
Sometimes I feel like I’m empty inside,
But that gives me something to do.

‘Cause there’s a vacuum inside me for all of your pain,
Flowers to soak up your tears like the rain,
I could ruffle your hair with the wind from my low flying plane with paper wings,
And if you’d take me for all that I am,
I would give you these things
If I could…
