"I Wish I Was Someone Better" as written by Steven Ansell and Laura Carter....
Chorus:
Made a mistake, I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame
Made a mistake, I made a mistake
I wear the scars to show my shame

What should I do, what should I do
When I'm the one who can't get through?
What should I do, what should I do
When I'm the one, hey, I'm the one to blame?

Verse I:
I can't see past this chance
For us to reconcile these doubts
They've all gone on for far too long
Yeah, it goes on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Chorus

Verse II:
Just not built for this role
And all the time much better spent
But it all drags on for far too long
And it drags on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on

Chorus

I wish I was someone better x12
Made a mistake x16

    This band's pretty easy to understand with lyrics.
