If I were (© Steff Mahan)

If I were a kite, I’d take your troubles to the sky
I’d catch the wind and I’d fly them high
They’d be out of reach, and they’d be out of sight
That’s what I’d do for you if I were a kite

And if I were a boat, I’d take your sadness out to sea
I’d tie it with an anchor and I’d drop it down deep
And I’d weigh it down good and it would never float
That’s what I’d do for you if I were a boat

But the bad news is I’m just me
And I don’t know what to do
Cause it ain’t always easy to see
The answers for what you’re going through

And if I were God, then you’d never cry again
Your soul would soar and your heart would mend
And a bad day…that thought would just be odd
That ‘s what I’d do for you if I were God

But the bad news is I’m just me
And I know I can never do enough
And so I write songs and hope you see
Into my heart and somehow feel this love

Oh but if I were
If I were
You know I would.
