lyrics

Marathon runner
Self assured lover
Dedicated mother
Man undercover
Righteous preacher
Who knows what he believes in
High class hooker
Who works on the streets

And if I could be you
You could be me

Homeless beggar
Man who reads the weather
Newspaper seller
Urban city dweller
Stay at home woman
Who cooks and does the cleaning
Office worker
Who lives for the weekend

If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me

We are the same (I know you’ll know me if you try)
Just people with people’s names (Can we swap places for a while?)
Let me look inside of you (You took my thoughts, I stole your mind)
Let me stand in your shoes (Now we’re one and the same kind)

Born to be a winner
Self confessed sinner
Born again believer
Satellite receiver
Underpaid worker
With no place to sleep in
The next big thing
Who thinks he’s really something

If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me
If I could be you
You could be me
