Lyrics

What You Wanna Be (ver. 6)

Like the way that you talk with me
Dropping those ten-cent words
I was sure we were gonna hang
Maybe I just misheard
Oh, 'cause

I don't know anything
I can't tell what you wanna be
Are you just a friend in need?
Could you be something more to me?
I learned my geography
Algebra came quick to me
This is all a mystery
I don't know what you wanna be

Just want to play silly games with you
You don't take any guff
I like it when, when you dance with me
It feels a bit like it's love
Oh, but

I don't know anything
I don't know what you wanna be
Are you just a friend in need?
Could you be something more to me?
I learned my geography
Algebra came quick to me
This is all a mystery
'Cause I don't know what you wanna be
