Lyrics for What a Man Can Be

If I was the sun I would rise every morning
And shine on every one
If I was the sky then I'd hold that sun

If I was the sea I would always know
Where to go, where to be
And if I was the shore then I'd hold that sea

But I am me, and I don't know yet
what to be
I am free, I can be what I can
I can love what I see
And I can learn to understand
There are many things
a man can be

If I was a bug I would do the things a bug does
I would just be a bug
If I was a snail, then I'd move like a slug

If I was a seed I would sprout and grow
I would help the earth be greened
My flowers they would bloom and I'd go to seed


If I was a tree I would reach for the sun
I'd be strong, silently
Deep would be my roots, and the earth
would hold me

If I was a bird I would fly to the sky
I would soar above the world
I would learn to sing that sweet song you've heard


If I was the breeze I would move in the leaves
As I passed through the trees
I would come and go in all that breathes

If I was the rain I would come from the clouds
I would run in a stream
Then I'd be the sea and then a cloud again
