Disguised As Someone Else

DISGUISED AS SOMEONE ELSE

I wish that I could come to you disguised as someone else
O I wish that I could come to you disguised as someone else
Help you lift your luggage from the platform to the train
Ask you for directions that I don’t need explained
You would never think to ask my name

Let’s not put it lightly, I put us both through hell
So I wish that I could come to you disguised as someone else

I wish that I could work for you with someone else’s hands
O I wish that I could work for you with someone else’s hands
To be behind the counter of a bookstore that you’re in
And charge you seven dollars for a crossword and a pen
You would leave and not look back again

Even hardened criminals they get a second chance
I wish that I could work for you with someone else’s hands

I wish that I could come to you
Could run to you
Could sing to you
A stranger in you neighborhood
Who doesn’t mean a thing to you
Singing now a long forgotten song
On and on and on

I don’t have the stomach to face you as myself
So I wish that I could come to you disguised as someone else
