How beautiful do the words have 2 b
B4 they conquer every heart?
How will U know if I'm even n the right key
If U make me stop b4 I start?

If I came back as a dolphin, would U listen 2 me then?
Would U let me b ur friend, would U let me n?
U can cut off all my fins but 2 ur ways I will not bend
I'll die b4 I let U tell me how 2 swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

Why does my brother have 2 go hungry
When U told him there was food 4 all?
This is the man that stands next 2 the man
That stands 2 catch U when U fall

Oh, if I came back as a dolphin, would U listen 2 me then?
Would U let me b ur friend, would U let me n?
U can cut off all my fins but 2 ur ways I will not bend
I'll die b4 I let U tell me how 2 swim
And I'll come back again as a dolphin

If I'm underwater, will U find me? (Oh)
Will U shine a light and try 2 guide me?
It's happened b4, I've knocked on ur door but U wouldn't let me n
Yeah, uh
Uh-uh

How beautiful do the words have 2 b
B4 they conquer every heart?

Oh, if I came back as a dolphin, would U listen 2 me then?
Would U let me b ur friend, would U let me n?
U can cut off all my fins but 2 ur ways I will not bend
I'll die b4 I let U tell me how 2 swim
Come back n the end as a dolphin (Oh)
I'll come back, baby
Let me n, let me n (As a dolphin)
B my friend, yeah (Dolphin)

Dolphin
As a dolphin
As a dolphin
As a dolphin
