If Love Was Like The Ocean

if love was like the ocean would it be big and blue?
if love was like the sea could it be you and me?
if love was like the sun,
would you be the only one?
if love was like diamonds in the sky,
would it be you I see when I open up my eyes?
if love was like the desert,
would it be easy or would it really hurt?
if love was like a mountain covered in a blanket of snow,
would I have to prove it or would my love you know?
if love was like a question would it even have an answer?
would it have pure skill to move and flow, like that of a dancer?
if love was as easy as people make it seem,
would we continue to try to make it better with every thoughtful dream?
if love was like a lighthouse by the deep blue sea,
tell me baby would you shine your light for me?
if love was like the wind on a dark and lonely night,
would you be there to hold me and keep away my fright?
if love was like the grand canyon,
would it be enough for millions?
if love were like the words you say,
would it be enough to get me through each and every day?
if love were like the ocean would it be big and blue?
if love were like the ocean could it be for me and you?
