Wish I'd known the way, wish I'd found the door
Wish I took the path you showed me before

'cause I'd be better off, I'd be a better man
If I was what you want, and not what I am

Careful what you wish, I am a dream come true now
I'm someone else who only wanted you

'cause I'd be better off, I'd be a better man
If I was what you want, and not what I am

I don't fear the break, I can't feel the bend
If I was what you want then I know, I know I can
Please believe in me, don't be leaving me
I won't be thrown away

Please believe in me, don't be leaving me
I try to make it plain that I can change
I can change

Wish I'd know the way, wish I could find the door
That can take us back to where we were before
Where we were better off, I was a better man
I was what you wanted and not what I am

I don't fear the break, I can't feel the bend
If it's what you want, then I know I can
Cause I'd be better off, I'd be a better man
If it's what you want, then I know I can
