I could move to Hollywood
get my teeth capped I know I could
be a big star on the silver screen
just like James Dean I could be a star
I could climb the corporate ladder
buy, sell, and liquidate
Maybe be just like the Beatles
melodic, rocking heavyweights
I could learn to sing and dance
if I only had a chance
I could be a big rock star

I could be anything I wanted to
I wanted to
I could be anything but one thing's true

Never gonna be as big as Jesus
never gonna hold the world in my hand
never gonna be as big as Jesus
never gonna build a promised land
but that's alright with me

I could build a tower to heaven
get on top and touch the sky
I could write a million songs
all designed to glorify
I could be about as good
good as any human could
but that won't get me by
