  • (Na na na na na)
    (Na na na na na)

    He takes your hand, I die a little
    I watch your eyes and I'm in riddles
    Why can't you look at me like that?

    (Na na na na na)

    When you walk by, I try to say it
    But then I freeze, and never do it
    My tongue gets tied, the words get trapped (trapped)
    I hear the beat of my heart getting louder, whenever I'm near you

    But I see you
    With him slow dancing
    Tearing me apart 'cause you don't see
    Whenever you
    Kiss him, I'm breaking,
    Oh how I wish that was me

    (Na na na na na)
    (Na na na na na)

    He looks at you, the way that I would
    Does all the things, I know that I could
    If only time, could just turn back
    'Cause I got three little words that I've always been dying to tell you

    But I see you
    With him slow dancing
    Tearing me apart 'cause you don't see
    Whenever you
    Kiss him, I'm breaking,
    Oh how I wish that was me

    With my hands on your waist, while we dance in the moonlight
    I wish it was me, that you'll call later on 'cause you wanna say good night

    'Cause I see you
    With him slow dancing
    Tearing me apart 'cause you don't see

    But I see you
    With him slow dancing
    Tearing me apart 'cause you don't see
    Whenever you
    Kiss him, I'm breaking,
    Oh how I wish
    Oh how I wish
    Oh how I wish, that was me

    Oh how I wish, that was me Writer/s: Carl Anthony Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Harish Kotecha
