lyrics

If I had my way I'd be lying in a field
Studying the sky, listen to you breathe
Measuring the blues right up against the greens
Moving to the stones that lie under my feet

But I don't have a tree to fall under
Or a bag full of stones to crawl under
I smile for awhile at the thunder
Dream about the day I can say
I had my way

If I stood my ground I'd be taller than I am
Like running up a hill or running through the sand
Measuring the blues right against the greens
Moving to the stones that lie under my feet

But I don't have a tree to fall under
Or a bag full of bones to crawl under
I smile for awhile at the thunder
Dream about the day I can say
I had my way

If I had my way I'd be lying in a field
Studying the sky listen to you breathe
Measuring the blues right up against the greens
Moving to the stones that lie under my feet

But I don't have a tree to fall under
Or a bag full of bones to crawl under
I smile for awhile at the thunder
Dream about the day I can say
I had my way

If I had my way I'd be lying in a field
