If Only

Death’s become a part of me
Hiding underneath my dreams
Death is all around me
Wake me up, I want to be

People living in their seas
Where we always used to live
Feeling all we couldn’t feel
But their feelings aren’t real

Now I’m naked and alone
In this desert to atone
For the sins of you and I
For the love we couldn’t hide

Only if you were alive
Only if the stars aligned
Only if the mountains moved
Only if the world approved

Please them all or prove them wrong
You used to say all along
If you can’t do what they want
Be yourself and rise above

Let them kill you
But don’t die
Let them hurt you
But don’t cry

Still, they couldn’t understand
And they buried you in sand
Please them all now where you are
Or forever be the one
