Kristian Valen – If I Was lyrics

I wish I was - I wish I was a soldier
I'd fight and die for you
I wish I was - I wish I was your captain
I'd guide you through life from my bridge

I wish I was - I wish I was a poet
Beautiful letters I could write
I wish I was - I wish I was a sailor
The stories I could tell

No, but I'm - no I'm
I'm just a fool for you
But I feel - I feel love
Love I never knew

But if I was - if I was a soldier
I'd be the biggest coward of all
And if I was - if I was a captain
I'd fall asleep on my watch

And if I was - if I was a poet
I'd probably not dare to show it
And if I was - if I was a sailor
I'd get drunk in every port
