I'd like to build a house
Without any walls
An open paradise
With a waterfall
Life is quite detestable
For some with feeble minds

Who always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself

I'd like to make a friend
Without any flaws
Who takes me for what I am
And nothing more
Life must be incredible
For those who stay out late

And always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself
They always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself

Life must be incredible
For those who stay out late

And always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself
They always make the mistake of being someone else
I always make the mistake of being myself
