What


What is the color of the wind
Yellow red or blue
What is the key to your heart
Because my love is true
The questions that I asked is not for me
But are for you
My love is blind
So you may command it to do what you want it to do
Where is the gateway to your heart
So that we may not be set asunder
Or fall apart
What makes you laugh
Will you be amused to see me break in half
What can I do to deserve your kiss
Will it be deserving in times you missed
Me
Sometimes I wish I was a tree
So that you may climb on my branches
To see
A whole new world which awaits us all
And I shall carry you
If you fall
And when Old fate comes knocking
You are sure to find old me blocking
Will you love me if my skin was white or brown
Or when I am dressed up like a circus clown
Or if I had treasures of unimaginable volumes
And I would build a castle for you with several columns
Will you love me if I was a medieval prince
Who ate venison with quince
Will you love this lonely African
Even if I told you that I wasn't an American
I will love you for forty million years
And cry you an ocean with my tears

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
