If I had a name, I would tell you that name
If I had a voice, it would sound like the winds whisper dancing on your ears
If I had a body and could move among you, it would be the body of a child
A child full of mischief and wonder
And I would make you play with me in the make-believe of my mind.
But as it is, I have no name and I have no voice
I stand by the door and I wait for it too open
I watch by the window and hope you’ll look up and see my shadow in the glass
I hide in the dust and compartments of your world
I am waiting.
I hear you outside the door and I know you want to enter
What wonders I could show you, what places I could take you
I could make you a film star, mother or a soldier fighting battles, a hero
I could make you beautiful or I could turn you in to a monster
I could make you an animal that was caged or I could make you free
I could turn you in to rain.
I know you fear me, as right you should. I am the unknown
You could get lost forever in the dust and compartments of my world
But in my world what wonders you could be!
You could be a clown in the circus, or a princess in a tower
You could be a jazz singer making music history
A great man running the world with courage and power
I could make you the things you’ve dreamed of, in those dull moments of your life
So step inside the door, look up at the glass
I need you as you need me
I need you to be my voice, my body and my name
I am a shadow in the darkness that lives only with the light of you
So step inside the door my lovely, let the games begin.
I think we’ll start with something wonderful like a dancer or a singer
I know that’s something you’ve always wanted to be
I see the light creeping in and I am waiting just over here
You’re here and now you are mine, come let us play!
And let’s start by giving me a name.
