There at the church, alone in the pew
I gazed at the one who stood next to you
The love in her eyes was one I could see
Since I thought to myself, “I wish it were me”

(CHORUS) I wish it were me who’s holding you now
Who’s saying those things when I was too proud
She’s living the dream I hoped mine would be
Oh, how I wish, I wish it were me

I thought many times that you had to know
As I’d stumble on words when you’d have to go
You introduced many you’d date casually
As I whispered inside, “I wish it were me”


Now you’ve found someone who will stand by your side
She’ll weather those storms; she’ll ride out the tide
Her soul’s filled with beauty from what I can see
But still I say sadly, “I wish it were me”
