lyrics

I wish I was wealthy and beautiful so I didn’t have to try so hard.
Could just forget about my problems, go and do nothing.
With fabulous people and movie stars

I wish I was in with the in crowd so I didn’t have to think so much.
Could just regurgitate the headlines and pat each others backs.
And never feel lonely or out of touch.

There’s so many different lives I’d like to lead.
There’s so many different places that I’d like to see.
On an endless horizon of possibilities.
In all of them, I would be anyone else but me.
Anyone else but me x3

I wish I was happy and ignorant instead of miserable but clueless all the same.
Wish I believed all of the lies that I saw in the news.
And I could kick my feet up and enjoy the game.

OR

I wish I was in the illuminati, shaking hands and shaping the world.
I would make lizardly plans from my home in outer space.
And watch with glee as they all unfurl.

There’s so many different lives that I’d like to lead.
And there’s so many different places that I’d like to see.
On an endless horizon of possibilities.
In all of them, I would be anyone else but me.
Anyone else but me x7

And it’s desire that drags me down, when I know I don’t need anything.
But I just can’t help but want what he’s got, what she’s got, what they’ve got.
Oh, I want everything.

I wish I was around in the 60s because I feel like things were better then.
I could have lived through peace and love instead of chaos and hatred.
And I wouldn’t have to watch our world as it ends.

Anyone else but me x3
I would be anyone else but me
Anyone else but me x3
I would be anyone else but me
I would be anyone else but me x3
Anyone else but me x3
I would be anyone else but me
