The Lyrics

From The Album "Hungry Like The Goat"
I wish I could fly, I'm just that naive
Soaring through the sky, air beneath my feet
I'd fly with the birds, I'd fly with the planes
I'd fly to the ground and fly beside the trains
Than I'd be happy to be me.

I wish that I was strong, wish that I could be
There to save the day, when you needed to be free
I don't want the fame, I don't want the praise
I just want out of this ignoring phase
I say I'm alive, and yet you can see
There's no one out there who will acknowledge me
And it's not easy to be me.

"Get up go away away from me"
It's all the time
They just turn right on a dime
Leave me hanging, and lonely.

I wish I could fly, I'm just that naive
Go away they say, well I'll show them all one day.

Well I'm human too, and you just don't care
What I am feeling here or what's special there
Only yourself and only your pride
Only your closest friends are allowed inside
Inside the ring, inside the ring. Yeah inside the ring, inside your ring
I may not be cool, or don't go with her
But what's the need, to be popular
I just need a friend that could like me for me
Then I'd be happy, I'd be happy to be me
