lyrics

I wanted to be a writer, I wanted to be a dancer, I wanted to deliver mail, I wanted to be a kung fu master, I wanted to be a mother, I wanted to be in a movie, I wanted to be a good lover, I wanted to be a Susie.

I wanted to be a doctor, I wanted to be a scientist, I wanted to be a good daughter, I wanted to be an archeologist, I wanted to be a spy, I wanted to be a historian, I wanted to learn how to fly, I wanted to be a librarian.

I wanted to be a flaneur, live somewhere on the left bank, I wanted to be a chauffeur, I wanted to be frank, I wanted to live on a farm, I wanted to ride a horse, I wanted to protect from harm, I wanted to be a good force.

I wanted to be a hero, I wanted to climb up walls, I wanted to be invisible, I wanted to go to Niagara Falls, I wanted to make a home, I wanted
to make some circles, I wanted to be alone, I wanted to join a circus.

I wanted to be a singer, I wanted to travel the world, I wanted to work for the theater, I wanted to find the right words, I wanted to hold on to love, I wanted to walk together, I wanted to rise above, the whims of my mood and the weather.

Now I’m down to my underwear and there’s nothing except me and my hair. You can count all the lines that are me, you can see the veins and my banged-up knee.
