"Sometimes" as written by Steven J. Williams and Jeff Batson....
I wish I were a little girl, in this lie
No one could resist my little girl smile
I wish I were a baby, in this love
I'd be cradled in your arms day and night

I wish I were an old man, a scholar
With the wisdom of a thousand men before me
Wish I were a funny dream that haunted
The people I love every time they were down

I wish I was a fine wine
I wish I were a good drug
Hey and if I were Jesus , maybe I could heal all of us
Just like a good lover, which one do you prefer?

In a world full of ourselves, I wish I were a little bird
Sometimes
I wish I were the sunset in Verona
I'd make a beautiful picture every time I went to bed
Or maybe more the sunrise waking up to a sad man
And hey if I were the blue skies, I'd never rain on him

I wish I was a fine wine
I wish I were a good drug
Yeah and if I were Jesus, maybe I could heal all of us
Just like a good lover, which one do you prefer?
In a world full of vices, I wish I were a little bird
Sometimes

I wish I were an angel in 52'
In a blue Cadillac on the eve of the new year
And there I would have saved him, the man who sang the blues
But maybe he is listening right now
Hopefully he's listening right now
