1. If I Was

From the recording If I Was

This song is about still giving all you have despite all the terrible ways that people manipulate each other in this world. Similar too that Mark Twain line..."Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt..." The bass line in the first song is an homage to Tina Weymouth of the Talking Heads


If I was a man would you take me by the hand?
If I was alive, would you kill me
If I was your man would you leave me when you can
If I was alive would you kill me

If I was a child would you drop me in the wild
If I was hungry would you feed me
If I was your child would your life become defiled
If I didn’t stop crying would you beat me

If I was your friend would you trust me to the end
or would your mind tell you I was deceiving
If I was your friend would you have a hand to lend
or would you walk away and stop believing

I’ve still give all I can
but don’t get me wrong
I’ve been broken down
I’m breaking down
