  • If I was a raindrop
    You'd be my thunderstorm
    It's cold, so surround me
    With rain clouds to keep me warm
    I feel like I'm falling

    So darling, don't let me go
    The thought is appalling
    But should I slip away into the stormy sea
    Will you remember me

    Asleep in the warm cocoons
    We dream of lovely things
    We're both gonna wake up soon
    So we hope that tomorrow brings
    Us our "Butterfly Wings"

    If I was a grain of sand
    Would you be Miami Beach
    So dusty with starlight
    Close your eyes and cuddle close to me

    I'll try not to wake you
    Or make a sound while you're dozing off
    But in the night should the high tides
    Sweep me away from you
    Tell me again my dear, will you be waiting here

    Whenever we leave the ground
    And take to the sky
    I'll smile as I'm gazing down
    'Cause I've always wondered why
    We won't need feathers to fly Writer/s: ADAM R. YOUNG
