I'D RATHER BE
[E. Maguire]
______________________________

I would rather be a rolling stone
Than a diamond in a crown
And I would rather keep my head in clouds
Than to tie my feet to the ground
And I would rather risk going way too high
Than to never fly at all
Oh I would rather take a running dive
Than be waiting for the fall

Cos I’d keep the passion and the pain
Than be chained in sanity
And I’d stand in the pouring rain
To feel the sun shine down on me

Cos I would rather be a shooting star
Than the empty space between
And I would rather make it short and sweet
Than to waste a century
And I would rather be a loose cannonball
Than a concrete paradise
Oh I would rather be a waterfall
Than a solid sheet of ice

Cos I’d keep the passion and the pain
Than be chained in sanity
And I’d stand in the pouring rain
To feel the sun shine down on me

And I would rather stare through the blackest night
Than never see the breaking dawn
And I would rather bear this rack of life
Than to never have been born
And I would rather be a feeling flying high
Than a reason running down
And I would rather be a field of silence
Than a universe of sound

Cos I’d keep the passion and the pain
Than be chained in sanity
And I’d stand in the pouring rain
To feel the sun shine down on me
