were a good man  I'd talk with you more often than I

repeat
do.

If I were a swan, I'd be gone...
If I were a train, I'd be late... and
If I were a good man,
I'd talk with you more often than I do.

If I were asleep, I could dream...
If I were afraid, I could hide... and
If I go insane,
Please don't put your wires in my brain.

If I were a moon, I'd be cool...
... and
If I were a good man,
I'd understand the spaces between friends.

If I were alone, I would cry...
If I were with you, I'd be home, and dry, and
If I go insane,
Will you still let me join in with the game.

Repeat first verse, end on E chord.
