I'd rather be a swallow
Soaring in the sky.
Not one single worry
I don't need an alibi...

I'm free to do whatever
I want and love to do.
If you understand me
Take my hand; you come too.

I'd rather be a dolphin
Swimming in the sea.
Peaceful graceful creature
Tranquil for all to see.

Forever keep on swimming
I'll never stop to rest.
If you understand me
Take my hand; you'll know it's best...

For you...
It's worth it just to see you smile.
Yes come along, don't bring that pile
Of responsibilities you have.

For me...
Leave for all eternity
Be a single entity.
Don't let anything hold me back from my dreams!

I'd rather be a swallow
Pilot my destiny.
Go wherever I may want
And think of only me.

Not one to barricade me.
No cage to bar my flight.
Just take it at your own pace
And soon you'll see the light.

I'd rather be a dolphin
Dive down till I can't see
The harshness that engulfs the world
The sad reality.

Do you not have these feelings?
Each day, you can't get by.
If you understand me,
Take my hand, and we shall fly...

For you...
It's worth it just to see you smile.
Yes come along, don't bring that pile
Of responsibilities you have.

For me...
Leave for all eternity
Be a single entity.
Don't let anything hold you back!

I'd rather be a dolphin.
Than sit around and cry.
I'd rather be a swallow.
Cease telling of those lies

Crap, crap, crap! >___<

Heh it represents the freeness of a swallow, not only that, but also the freeness of a bird. I think sometimes we all feel like we could be free like that.

It was good.
