Kina Grannis – My Own lyrics

If you were my father
If you were my own
You would speak
All the wisdom known

If you were my mother
Any problem that comes
You would fix
And leave it better when you're done

And I would cry for reasons
I won't tell anyone

If you were my sister
You'd already know
Everything that's ever made me low
And you would tell me words that'd heal
Anything I broke


If you were my brother
Even though I've none
You would still
Protect me when I'm grown
And you would make this place
Feel a little more like home
