If I were a parrot would you see me as just another bird?
Would you point and you'd stare and you'd say a silly word?
Would I gawk, would I look back and wonder, "What are you doing?"
Would you smile and laugh as your emotions start brewing?

If I were an alarm clock would you greet me in the morning with a hard slam?
Or would you thank me and get out of bed at six A.M?
Would I get hit in the head and be broken and brused?
Would you fix me up and appologies for your abuse?

*If I could be anything would it be the same?
Would you love me, would you hate me, or would you put me to shame?
Because I'm not just a girl.
I'm not just from this world.
I'm there when you sleep and I'm here in your dreams.
I'll be there when your frightened; your heart torn at the seems.
No matter what I am I'll be there through and through.
I'll still be here, still here watching over you.

If I were a comforter would you think of me as nothing that great?
Or would you wrap me all around you and not care how much you're late?
Would we stay there all day? Just you and me?
Or would you invite someone else in to invade our privacy?
*
If I'm a thousand miles away, I'll still be at your side.
You may not know it but my heart flows in with the tide.
It reaches for you and tries to pull you back in,
But it seems as if it's not enough for me to win.
You keep passing by all of these things that you happen to see,
And you don't even realize if it could be me.

If I could be anything would it be the same?
Would you love me, would you hate me, or would you put me to shame?
Because Im not just one person out there in life's great big tie.
I'm a million things on Earth and a trillion in the sky.
Can't you see me in the words; the lines of a song?
Do you hear me screaming for you your whole life long?

If I were a parrot, would you see me as just another bird?
Would you hold out your hand so I could land in your perfect world?
Just look all around you and see what is near.
Now can't you see me standing right over here?
