If I could land
A horse-shoe on a stake
Or understand
The signals on the railway,
Shaded glass,
For staring into the sun

If I could sail
Across an open sea
And land aground
With only chart and quadrant
Speak aloud
And everyone around hears me.

Oh I could be king,
One to admire,
One for the throne,
One for the empire.

I could stand before the fire.

Oh I could slay
A giant in a day
Or write a song
And have you sing along
Or strum a chord
And never speak a word again

If I could dance
And let myself go
Unndignified
but I'll be alright
And fall from grace
And pay the price for everything,
