If you were the ground beneath my feet
I'd find a way to float or just walk so gently
If you were the star in the night sky
I'd figure out how to fly or just walk with my head high

They pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
Babies grow and buy their own homes
To fill with families of their own

If you were the clouds that bring the shadows
The dark won't make me sad, though I miss you
I'll make shadow puppets and I'll laugh
Because I know you'd love it
And I'll cry a little too

If I were God, I'd destroy all religion
Abolish all divisions and leave the world with love
And I'd probably take you up with me
Because we're selfish here above

Yeah they pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
Babies grow and buy their own homes
To fill with families of their own

We've lost a lot, but we've got much more
And if you need comfort, that's what we're here for
And if the ground shall crumble, and the stars shall fall
I will hold your hand and we'll both stand tall

They pushed me around, but they haven't knocked me down
Flowers die, so I'll plant a pot inside
Babies grow and buy their own homes
To fill with families of their own

I'm not so scared, I'm not so scared
I'm not so scared, I'm not so scared
