Françoise Hardy — I Wish It Were Me lyrics

By the way she was smiling, with her eyes so beguiling
I could tell at a glance that I hadn't a chance

She is almost too lovely but I wish it were me
Then I know you'd only want to be looking my way

It's a strange fascination to be faced with temptation
Should you answer her call, are you going to fall?

She is almost too lovely but I wish it were me
Then I know you'd only want to be falling for me

What would I do, were I in her place?
When love is new, it's so hard to face

Is her love so much stronger that you want me no longer
Has she taken my place with her sweet angel face

She is almost too lovely, still I wish it were me
Then you might know how it feels when you're trying to hide
All of the pain that you made my heart suffer inside.
