Anamieke Quinn

I might as well live in the ocean today
And let the current nearly sweep me away
The passing creatures barely notice me tumbling by
And I begin to wonder why……

I might as well live like a butterfly
And never have to flap my wings to get by
I could float upon the gentle springtime breeze
And be admired by the flowers and trees

But I don’t want to live like a butterfly
I much prefer the caterpillar’s dirt and grime
Don’t care to swim below the surface where the people glow
So I float, float, away

I might as well live in my tropical dream
My own deserted desert island jungle scene
Complete with luscious man and coconut trees in white sand
that meet the turquoise waves at the shore……
I don’t worry anymore

I might as well live in the ocean today
Or be the lovely butterfly that glides away
Or I could nestle in some palm fronds in my paradise
I might as well just wrap a blindfold all around my eyes

‘Cause I don’t care to live in a beautiful lie
I much prefer the truth behind the tears I cry
Don’t care to swim below the surface where the people glow
So I float, float away
