If The World Were Ours


Just the two of us alone in the world
We will make everyday a blast
Sleep side by side to wake
in the trust of each other's arm

If the world were ours
We will share the quiet night
Listen to the tides grumbling
Against the river banks

If the world were ours
We'd know every butterfly by their names
Call out to birds in the sky
And roses by their colours

Just the two of us alone in the world
We will share the air we breath
Live life like we don't care
Cause death wouldn't even matter

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
