If I were the rain, Id wipe away your tears
And teach you not to dwell on pointless fears
If I were the wind, Id blow away your pain
And show you how to love again
If I were an earthquake, Id topple all the lies
Built one upon the other to the skies
If I were a hurricane, Id gather all the hurtful words
And bury them with all the two-edged swords
If I were a volcano, Id stretch out my hand
And change the deserts into fertile land
If I were a tsunami Id show you how to give
To make amends and help our people live
But if I were a raging fire, Id burn every skin
Till each shade of yellow, brown, white and black is kin
