"I Wish That I Could Be You" as written by and Kimberly Shattuck....
Life is a joke, you need but I don’t
And everybody is crazy
I’m not what I seem, alone in a dream
I may not be but I’m lazy

The outside me is ahead by three
And I don’t think I’m awful, you?
The inside me is ashamed to be
And I don’t know what to do

Will I fall or will I fly?
Oh my, you know the answer too
Oh well, what the hell

I wish that I could be you

I want everything and I like to see
My whole life before my eyes
And pardon me if I’m a little weird
Now I wanna say goodbye

Will I fall or will I fly?
We’ll find it out real soon
We’ll see, ooh whee

I wish that I could be you
I wish that I could be you
I wish that I could be you oh yeah

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this song? It's awesome. Basically the theme song to my life right here. I first heard it on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I pursued adding to it my music library until I found it. Especially love "The outside me is ahead by three/And I don't think I'm awful, you?/The inside me is ashamed to be/And I don't know what to do..." That could sum up my whole life in those four lines...
