If I were an aeroplane
And all you had left was pocket change
I would fly the whole wide world for you
Like a bird takes to the skies of blue

But I’m just a simple guy
And I didn’t wave when your train went by
Because I really didn’t want to believe
That you were speeding away
Away from me

If I were a diplomat
I could live wherever I put my hat
And I’d build an island just for you
And me; total population: 2

But I’m just an ordinary man
Whose silly dreams just don’t fit the plans
Of a border town run by guards
Between two countries and
Between two hearts

I thought I’d change it if I could
But now I’m not so sure I ever would
It’s when you find / That life is not a movie show
And in your mind then it really smarts
In all this time
I thought perhaps you’d want to know just
What it’s like to be in love

If I were a novelist
I’d write a book for the best-seller lists
And in it I’d never have to let you go
And by the last page everyone would know

That I’m just a silly boy
Whose words are a little shy and a little bit coy
But they’re not meant for anyone but you
And all that matters is you knowing it’s all true

I thought I’d change it if I could
But now I’m not so sure I ever would
So should I love and lose or just not love at all?
It’s up to you to try it
Because up above
I’d like to hope and think and know that
You and I
We could make it
You and I
We could make it
You and I
We could make it

    7th FRET OVER ANDRES

    If I were an aeroplane / And all you had left was pocket change / I would fly the whole wide world for you / Like a bird takes to the skies of blue / But I’m just a simple guy / And I didn’t wave when your train went by / Because I really didn’t want to believe / That you were speeding away / Away from me / If I were a diplomat / I could live wherever I put my hat / And I’d build an island just for you / And me / Total population: 2 / But I’m just an ordinary man / Whose silly dreams just don’t fit the plans / Of a border town run by guards / Between two countries and / Between two hearts / I thought I’d change it if I could / But now I’m not so sure I ever would / It’s when you find / That life is not a movie show / And in your mind then it really smarts / In all this time / I thought perhaps you’d want to know just / What it’s like to be in love / If I were a novelist / I’d write a book for the best-seller lists / And in it I’d never have to let you go / And by the last page everyone would know / That I’m just a silly boy / Whose words are a little shy and a little bit coy / But they’re not meant for anyone but you / And all that matters is you knowing it’s all true / I thought I’d change it if I could / But now I’m not so sure I ever would / So should I love and lose or just not love at all? / It’s up to you to try it / Because up above / I’d like to hope and think and know that / You and I / We could make it / You and I / We could make it / You and I / We could make it
