Lyrics & Music by Martin Shears

lyrics

Lets be us - Don't wanna be them
The sum of all we've been since way back when
I'll be you - and you can be me
'Cause through each other's eyes there's clarity

Words will never show it
You just feel it then you'll know it

If you were me for a day
You'd see all the beauty in you
If you were me for a day
You'd see how my love shines through
But it's hard for me to tell you
"Cause I haven't got a clue
Not a clue - to get through to you

Angry words will drive in a wedge
Talk me down or push me off that ledge
Where I fall impressions are made
The one's I have of you I'd never trade

Take you as I find you
I'm always right behind you

If you were me for a day
You'd see all the beauty in you
If you were me for a day
You'd see how my love shines through
But it's hard for me to tell you
"Cause I haven't got a clue
If you were me for a day
You'd love you too

Words will never show
But alright, I'll have a go

You're the voice inside my head
You're the left side of the bed
You're the Baileys in my cream
You're the sexy in my dream
You're the oxygen I breathe
And the ace that's up my sleeve
You're the first star in the sky
You're the sin I can't deny
You're the heart that fills my soul
You're the rock inside my roll
And after every dumb cliche
There's only one thing left to say
I wish you could be me for a day - Oh you know it!
I wish you could be me for a day
