lyrics

I wish I was a poet, I would describe during hours the beauty of my feelings, the depth of my love
I'd tell you endlessly travels, endless stories around the world, from caterpillar to butterfly, from the idea to the novel
I'd write lines and lines of love, words blowing in the wind while we would run hand in hand in the golden grasses of the summer sunset

I wish I was a poet, I'd invent a life after death

I would not be afraid of loosing inspiration just after writing the first verse of a song
Words would never be bitter, I'd see the world with child eyes, I'd watch you sleeping during hours, writing your dreams
Sweetness, serenety, I'd draw a smile on your face, I'd take you by the hand deep in my mind

I wish I was a poet, I'd invent our Promised Land

Where fear and violence would not exist, where everyone keeps the glow of goodness, words would not even suffice to describe your smell
I'd give you on the paper the wealth of the four elements, a whole life woulnd't suffice to describe the beauty of you skin shivering in the wind
I'd tell you the path followed by grain of sand and wave through the ocean, you on the warm beach

I wish I was a poet, I'd invent a life after death
I wish I was a poet, I'd invent our Promised Land
I wish I was a poet, I wish I was a poet, I wish I was a poet...
But I'm not
