I Wish I Was A Girl Lyrics

The devil's in the dreaming,
He tells you I'm not sleeping in my hotel room alone,
With nothing to believe in,
You dive into the traffic rising up, and it's so quiet,
You're surprised and then you wake.

For all the things you're losing,
You might as well resign yourself to try and make a change,
I'm going down to Hollywood,
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find,
Crawling round my brain.

I wish I was a girl, so that you could believe me,
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep,
I wish for all the world that I could say,
Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days.

The devil's in the dreaming,
You see yourself descending from a building to the ground,
You watch the sky receding,
You spin to see the traffic rising up, and it's so quiet,
You're surprised, and then you wake.

For all the things I'm losing,
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change,
But I'm going down to Hollywood,
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find,
Crawling round my brain.

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me,
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep,
I wish for all the world that I could say,
Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days.

In one of these dreams, you forgive me,
It makes me think of the bad decisions that keep you at home,
How could anyone else have changed?
All these wrong conclusions that leave you alone,
How could everyone rearrange?
How could everyone else have changed?
What I see, I believe.

For all the things I'm losing,
I might as well resign myself to try and make a change,
Well, I'm going down to Hollywood,
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find,
Crawling around my brain.

I wish I was a girl so that you could believe me,
And I could shake this static every time I try to sleep,
I wish for all the world that I could say,
Hey Elizabeth, you know, I'm doing alright these days.

But I can't sleep at night,
No I can't sleep at night,
Well I can't sleep at night,
But I can't sleep at night.
