"Why Can't I Be Me?" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Perry Bamonte and Jason Toop Cooper....
You're so gorgeous I'll do anything
I'll kiss you from your feet to where your head begins
You're so perfect you're so right as rain
You make me
Make me, make me, make me hungry again

Everything you do is irresistible
Everything you do is simply kissable
Why can't I be you?

I'll run around in circles 'til I run out of breath
I'll eat you all up
Or I'll just hug you to death
You're so wonderful
Too good to be true
You make me, make me, make me, make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply delicate
Everything you do is quite angelicate
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?

You turn my head when you turn around
You turn the whole world upside down
I'm smitten I'm bitten I'm hooked I'm cooked
I'm stuck like glue
You make me, make me, make me, make me hungry for you

Everything you do is simply dreamy
Everything you do is quite delicious
So why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?

Why
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
Why can't I be you?
You're simply elegant

    General CommentGod! This song is great why hasn't anyone commented this masterpiece? It obviously seems like a person who is being someone he/she isnt for this other person and is just in thought over it. upset.

    General CommentNo, there is a Cure Song called Why Can't I Be Me. It was a b-side on the single for Taking Off. :)

    General CommentA relationship with someone holding you back is a possible take, but I wonder if, after all these years, Robert still struggles with getting the labels and such to agree with him and to let him do his own thing.
