IF I WANT TO

I think I want to be a sailor on Tuesday and a pilot today
Want to be far out of your sight, want to stay gone till tonight

I think I want to be a cowboy on Thursday, riding herd
Want to travel on the open plains that are no more
Want to fight a range war till tonight

When the sights and sounds of loving
Make me just forget all about my dreams.
I never need a fantasy with you
When everything is calm and I’m nestled in your arms
For the night

I think I want to be an artist on Saturday and a priest tomorrow
Want to be so far above the rest you won’t know me till tonight

I’d give up all my dreams forever just to have you today
But I can still be a cowboy, sailor/priest

If I want to
If I want to
Want to
