The Miniature Philosopher Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I wish I knew a man
Someone to steal me
From this sadness

I wish I knew a girl
Who'd run her fingers
Through my hair and kiss me

Wish, I didn't have to pretend
That when I'm talking to the floor
I'm talking to you

If I had a friend
Then such stupid things
I'd never have to do
I wish I had a friend

I wish I knew a man
One who'd help me
Stop disguising my feelings

I wish I knew a girl
Who'd keep me from
Silencing my heart's voice

Oh, I wish I didn't feel
Like an island
No country will claim

Wish I had a friend who'd stop me
From falling into this depression
All over again

I wish I had a friend like that
Oh, but I know it will never be
So that friend for me
Has to come from inside of me
My friend will have to be me

I wish I knew a man
Someone to help me
Stop being self-conscious

I wish I knew a girl
One to take away my fear of dying

I wish I weren't afraid that some spirit
Will come out of the darkness and carry me away
Wish I had a friend whom if that happened
Would storm right in and save the day

I wish I had a friend like that
Oh, but I know it will never be
So that friend for me
Has to come from inside of me
My friend will have to be me
