Anything But

C'mere to me. I wish I was a may fly on the River Tay
I'd fit all my joys and my pleasures in one perfect day
I wish I was the sunlight just sitting on The Mississippi
I'd settle for a shopping trolley in The Liffey

In a shot I'd swap my body for a body of water
Worry the cliff side top as a wave crashing over
I'd lower the world in a flood
Or better yet I'd cause a drought

If I was a rip tide
I wouldn't take you out
I don't wanna be anything
But I would do anything just to run away

I don't wanna be anything like this at all
But I would do anything if you'd hear me say
Go look another way
Look another way

Look, I wanna be loud
So loud, I'm talking seismic
I wanna be soft as a single stone in a rain stick
I wanna be the thunder of a hundred thousand hooves moving quick

If I was a stampede
You wouldn't get a kick
I wanna be the shadow when my bright future's behind me
I wanna be the last thing anybody ever sees

I hear he touches your hand, and then you fly away together
If I had his job
You would live forever
I don't wanna be anything

But I would do anything just to run away
I don't wanna be anything like this at all
I would do anything if you'd hear me say
Go look another way

Look another way
I don't wanna be anything, be anything
But I would do anything (Go look another way)
I don't wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be, wanna be

Don't wanna be anything, anything
Go look another way
Look another way
