Pebbles

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
