Hands touch,

I think it was her beauty

That reminded me that I'm wrong.

Eyes meet.

I'm not so sure if he chose her.

From the way he looked in my eyes.

Sudden silence,

But I know I'd choose her.

Sudden heat.

I don't know who she wants.

Hearts leap in a giddy whirl.

When she looks at me,

I can't think.

He could be that boy,

I wonder if Glinda felt the same way.

But I'm not that girl.

Don't dream too far.

I always thought that maybe

Maybe she felt for me.

Don't lose sight of who you are.

But then I wished I could feel for Fiyero

The way Galinda did.

I just want to be normal, for once.

Don't remember that rush of joy.

I can't help but realize that

The way I looked at her

Is the same way he looks at me.

He could be that boy,

Awkward and shy, admiring all the same.

But I'm not that girl.

Every so often, we long to steal

Into our thoughts, where everything works.

I drift, more and more

To the land of what-might-have-been

Everything's beautiful there.

We love each other.

He just stays out of our way.

But that doesn't soften the ache we feel

Nothing's ever going to work out right.

I only just realized that.

When reality sets back in.

Blithe smile.

If I close my eyes,

I can pretend he is her.

Lithe limb.

Then I think, maybe I should stay with him.

Be normal, for once.

She who's winsome, she wins him.

She stole my heart the moment we met.

Gold hair with a gentle curl.

She entranced me. But it wasn't meant to be.

And now… Fiyero and me.

That's the girl he chose

We all have an image of me,

It's normal, at least in this aspect.

And heaven knows

I don't want to be her.

I don't want to be with him.

I'm not that girl.

Don't wish.

I just want other people to be happy.

Don't start.

But can't she be happy with me?

Wishing only wounds the heart.

Love will never be right for me.

I wasn't born for the rose and pearl.

I wasn't born for her.

There's a girl I know,

She looks like me,

But she's someone else.

He loves her so.

I guess I'll pretend, to make him happy.


I'm not that girl…
