Anthony Rapp – Some Other Me lyrics

Feat. Idina Menzel

Somewhere there's a world where you and I are man and wife
We have a child
Or three
And it’s just fine with me
To love that life

And somewhere there's a world
Where from the first we never met

We never spoke
Or kissed
We don't know what we missed
Or don't know yet

And I didn't go to Vassar,
But to Smith, or Yale, or Brown
I ended up in Boston,
Or some small Alaska town
To practice law, or neuter cats,
Or fish the Bering Sea
Those lives are lived somewhere
By some other me

Some other me
Is homeless
Some other me
Is queen
Some other me has seen things that no other me has seen
If I met her I would ask her that one question we both fear:
Some other me
How’d we end up here?

Somewhere there’s a me who never loved that other you
Who liked you fine
I guess
As buddies, more or less
And that would do

And somewhere there's a you who simply worshipped other me
And we were wild
And hot
And all the things we’re not
And we were free

And somewhere I'm the president,
With plans that never fail
And somewhere I'm a rebel king,
And some where I'm in jail
I didn't chase my glory days long after they were done
I found myself a woman, or a man, and had a son

Some other me’s
A rockstar
Some other me’s
Still cool

Some other me does not feel like som tired old fool
And you and I are strangers,
Or we’re lovers, or we’re not
The other mes
Live with what they've got

Look down each road left untaken

Trace ev’ry turn and twist

The lives that we just let go by

The dreams we might have missed

Lucas & Beth:
Now we’re old enough to know that
One road ends where one begins
The moment where the “what might bes”
Turn into “might have beens”

Somewhere there’s a world where you and I can still be friends
Not like we were
Not yet
We forgive but don't forget
No happy ends
But friends
