I wish I could be anyone
But the one that I am now
I wish I could see any scene
But the one I hang around
I wish I could do anything
But the things I always do

No matter how I try to sing along
Somethin' is always wrong
What I wish I knew

I wish I could drive in the car
That you drive around the bay
I wish I could ride in the back seat
You're ridin' in today
I wish I could be more like someone
You wish that I could be

No matter how I change it anyway
You won't even say
If you really want me

I can try to please you
Get down on my knees for you
Go outside and freeze for you
Cross the high seas for you
Whatever you need me to

I can climb the trees for you
Twist in the breeze for you
But the one thing that I can never do
I can't believe for you
I can't believe in me for you

I wish I could turn
Into somebody far, far away
I wish I could make
Myself satisfactory in every way
I wish I could know
Whether you really know what you need

If I could only be somebody else
I wouldn't be myself
And maybe you'd want me

I can try to please you
Get down on my knees for you
Go outside and freeze for you
Cross the high seas for you
Whatever you need me to

I've been climbing the trees for you
Twistin' in the breeze for you
But the one thing I can never, never do
I can't believe for you
I can't believe in me for you
