I’d Rather Be, II.

My friend Nat surprised me with this song in response to my LBC Post I’d Rather Be. I had never heard this song before and it resonates. I am sure that my readers will enjoy listening to this too.

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

And I have seen another sunrise,
and another lightning storm
I’m not just the me you see
You see another me was born

Another me lives another life,
I’ve always dreamed
Another me exists somewhere
Why can’t I live that life there?
Please let me be … the other me

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

I have seen another sky
I have climbed another tree
I have wished another star,
above another star lit sea

Somewhere I’m happy
I’m smiled at understood
In another Place I lift my face,
not hide it in a hood

I have loved another love,
in another place like this
I’ve been held and felt so safe
Oh yes, I’ve kissed another kiss

  2. A parallel universe? Or desires unfulfilled? I may or may not know.

    This is a new one for me and I may well borrow the words for use at another time.
