  • Could I have been
    A parking lot attendant
    Could I have been
    A millionaire in Bel Air
    Could I have been lost somewhere in Paris
    Could I have been
    Your little brother
    Could I have been
    Anyone other than me
    Could I have been
    Anyone other than me
    Could I have been
    Anyone other than me
    Could I have been
    Anyone

    He stands touch his hair his shoes untied
    Tongue gaping stare
    Could I have been a magnet for money?
    Could I have been anyone other than me?

    Twenty three and so tired of life
    Such a shame to throw it all away
    The images grow darker still
    Could I have been anyone other than me? Then I

    Look up at the sky
    My mouth is open wide, lick and taste
    What's the use in worrying, what's the use in hurrying
    Turn, turn we almost become dizzy

    I am who I am who I am who am I
    Requesting some enlightenment
    Could I have been anyone other than me?

    Sing and dance I'll play for you tonight
    And thrill at it all
    Dark clouds may hang on me sometimes
    But I'll work it out then I

    Look up at the sky
    My mouth is open wide, lick and taste
    What's the use in worrying, what's the use in hurrying
    Turn, turn we almost become dizzy

    Falling out of a world of lies
    Could I have been dancing Nancy
    Could I have been anyone other than me? Writer/s: DAVID JOHN MATTHEWS
