I wanna be like Harry Houdini
And be the one to make the great escape
I wanna be where no one'll see me
You've gotta learn a lesson, give and take

I wanna be where lovin is easy
If I could go it wouldn't be a dare
Cause when you look in my eyes
How can you not realize
That I would go and couldn't give a care

I wanna be like Harry Houdini
Where there ain't nothin that'll keep me in
I wanna be where no one'll see me
Can't find a way to say I can't begin

And when I'm gone I know how you'll miss me
How could there ever really be a doubt
Cause when you look in my eyes
How can you not realize
That you could never really be without

How much more can I believe in
The things they say
I'm past the point, I'm leavin
I gotta get away


I wanna be like Harry Houdini
And be the one to make the great escape
I wanna be where no one'll see me
You've gotta learn a lesson, give and take

I wanna be where lovin is easy
If I could go it wouldn't be a dare
Cause when you look in my eyes
How can you not realize
That I would go and couldn't give a care

Why should I try to change me
You never will
My past comes back to chase me
I won't be happy till


I wanna be

I'm gonna be

I wanna be

I'm gonna be
I'm gotta be

    General CommentI watched on TV a serie about Harry Houdini. It was terrible, but this song made my teenage.
