lyrics

I wish I could be somebody else
Somebody you'd like
With the answers you'd like
Then I wouldn't have to stay up at night
I wish I could be somebody else

What if I'm more obsessed with you than anyone I meet?
Most days I think I'll never land on my feet
I can't even see my feet
I'm just obsessed with me, aren't I

I wish I could be somebody else
Somebody you'd like
With the answers you'd like
The kind to keep us up at night
I wish I could be somebody else

I don't have epiphanies, just things I never thought about
Because there so obvious IIII'm embarassed how long it took to figure out
My problems are still there, I just don't write them down
I don't write so well sometimes, well, you know...



I put on jeans to write this
Maybe sweatpants would have been more symbolic

Else, Old English (elles--related to elles in French?); Proto-Germanic (aljaz), Gothic Aljis; Roman, Alius; Greek, Allos.
Can we go back any farther?

How far back in history do we have to go before I find me?
In the march of history what will become of me?

Maybe I should be an attorney at law?
Would I want to be an attorney at all
COULD I HAVE BEEN PUT ON THIS EARTH—TO OWN MY VERY OWN HOUSE?
Put me in the pleasure box and I'll figure it out!

I'm trying to be somebody else
Somebody else—else—else—else
I guess we'll see?
