Beautiful & Wild

  • I don't wanna be a poet
    'Cause poets drown in lakes
    And I don't wanna be a sinner
    And watch the devil dance in my wake

    I just wanna be a dreamer
    A dreamer that's wide awake
    I just wanna be a lover
    Even if my heart has to break

    If only we could see the world through the new eyes of a child
    If only every boy and girl could just stay beautiful and wild
    And there's probably no saving us but I wrote this song to try
    So let's sing la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la

    I don't wanna be president
    'Cause I don't know which side to take
    And I don't wanna be a fortune teller
    'Cause that's just tempting fate

    I just wanna be a drop of water
    And fall down in a storm of rain
    Live a life in the deep blue sea
    And rise back up again

    If only we could see the world through the new eyes of a child
    If only every boy and girl could just stay beautiful and wild
    And there's probably no saving us but I wrote this song to try
    So let's sing la la la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la

    We've got the same desires, burning fires in
    The middle of our soul
    But all your gold and silver won't last forever so
    Won't you let it go

    'Cause we were born to be dreamers
    Dreamers wide awake
    We were born to be lovers
    Even if our hearts have to break

    If only we could see the world through the new eyes of a child
    If only every boy and girl could just stay beautiful and wild
    And there's probably no saving us but I wrote this song to try
    So let's sing la la la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la

    So let's sing la la la la la la la la la
    So let's sing la la la la la la la la la Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
