lyrics

If she was a bird I wouldn’t be a bird
I’d be something else
I’d probably be a cactus in the desert out West
Waiting on the rain like all the rest
 
She’d be a bird in the sky so fine
Looking for a place to rest her wings
I’d be growing from the desert ground
With spines up and down
So don’t you try and land on me
 
And if she was a rocket ship
And I was a planet out there
I’d be shining bright all through the night
In the middle of nowhere
 
And oh what a pretty rocket ship
From my planet I can see
But there’s no air 
To breathe down here
So don’t you try and land on me
 
If she was a boat sailing fast
And I was an island in the blue
My coast would be full of ghosts 
From old ships wrecked passing through
 
Well I’m just land that’s all I am
Surrounded by rocks in the sea
If you get too close you’ll get a hole in your boat
So don’t you try and land on me
