    IF I WERE THE WIND
    A WHISPERIN TONE
    SWEEP THROUGH THE TREES
    ME......A GENTLE BREEZE

    FLOW WITH THE BIRDS
    FLIRT IN THE SUN
    DRIFTING MY CURRENT
    I WOULD FLOAT ALONG

    KISSING THE FLOWERS
    WITH PRECIOUS CARE
    WHILE HONEY BEES SUCKLE
    I DISPERSE POLLEN IN THE AIR

    IF I WERE THE WIND
    FREE I WOULD BE
    PLEASANTLY SUSPENDED
    I MOVE THROUGH MY SPACE

    FASCINATED WITH THE BEAUTY
    OF THIS PLANET CALLED EARTH
    I'D DANCE ON FLUFFY CLOUDS
    PRODUCING ARTISTIC SHAPES

    IF I WERE THE WIND
    LIKE A WHISTLE I WOULD BLOW
    ACROSS THE OCEAN'S SURFACE
    I WOULD RIPPLE WAVES TO THE SHORE

    IF I WERE THE WIND
    A PEACEFUL SUMMER BREEZE
    RESTING ON MOUNTAINS
    SCATTERING LEAVES

    IF I WERE THE WIND
    ELUSIVE BY NATURE
    FOEVER A FORCE
    FOREVER THE WIND

    if i was the wind...

    or, maybe, just a gentle breeze
    i'm travel over land and sea
    making my way to
    ...wherever you BE

    when i'd find my way to you
    i'd surround you with NICE
    that's what i'd do

    give your body a gentle caress
    lay my touch
    upon your chest

    in and out
    every strand of your hair
    whispering love songs
    in your ear

    holding evil away from you
    kiss your cheek
    yeal, that's what i'd do.

    if i was the wind.
