If Only

     
 

If we only lived on the ocean floor
Below the waves and the storm and roar
We'd stroll along in our garden blue
Where the flowers all come and play with you
It's true we'll live in a great big tear
But the world above will never harm us here

Oh I, I just wonder where would I
Be without the tears I've cried
Unless you're from another star
Tears are part of what we are

Where will we run to
The blues always find you
The blues they know just where to look
Oh the blues they know you just like a book

Oh the garden here if we only knew
Oh the door is so wide we could breeze on through
We could sooth our souls we could understand
See the lion lay down by the lamb
But we linger on by the garden door
Boy the old world hurts but we still want more

Oh I, I just wonder where would I
Be without the tears I've cried
Unless you're from another star
Tears are part of what we are
