Pebbles

Chords

 

Well it would be a lovely start
To plant some pebbles in the garden
Hope to grow a planet large
That floats around in our backyard

And yes, your family still could visit
We haven't left the solar system
If they request consent to land
We'll accept if we are wearing pants

But most days let's just float on top
And orbit all our favorite spots
If we get dizzy, let's fall off
A couple cozy astronauts

Well it would be a lovely start
To plant some pebbles in the garden
If it won't rain it doesn't matter
We'll water them with tears of laughter

At first there might not be much to it
No forest, roads or rivers through it
A rocky globe to start us off
And on it grow the world we want

The neighbors will all think we're strange
As we wave at them from outer space
But I had to know just how it felt
To grow something bigger than…

What I have built alone
A home I thought I'd never leave
But you and I can shape a world
The lakes and towns and everything
We'll put a planet in the sky
Grown from pebbles, you and I

And if little aliens do invade attempts at peace will still be made
I'll contact them with gifts but if they reject those I will insist
On meeting their attacks with might: a big galactic pillow fight
And just before they win we're told they're allergic to the whimsical
So I'll blast this song and don't you know: the sweetness makes their heads explode
And look they're filled with popcorn so let's grab a snack, sit back, and watch the show…

I'm not a chemist, no, I am no geologist
But you and I can shape a world
The lakes and towns and all of it
And bit by bit and stone by stone
The pebbles take the shape of somethin' else
That’s growing bigger than myself
