Paul McCartney The Other Me Lyrics

Last updated: 05/08/2008 11:00:00 AM

by Paul McCartney

I KNOW I WAS A CRAZY FOOL,
FOR TREATING YOU THE WAY I DID.
BUT SOMETHING GOT A HOLD OF ME
AND I ACTED LIKE A DUSTBIN LID.

I DIDN'T GIVE SECOND THOUGHT
TO WHAT THE CONSEQUENCE MIGHT BE.
I REALLY WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED
IF YOU WERE TRYIN' TO FIND ANOTHER ME.

'CAUSE THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER BE THE GLAD ONE,
THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER PLAY THE FOOL.
I WANNA BE THE KIND OF ME
THAT DOESN'T LET YOU DOWN AS A RULE.

I KNOW IT DOESN'T TAKE A LOT
TO HAVE A LITTLE SELF-CONTROL,
BUT EVERY TIME THAT I FORGOT,
WELL, I LANDED IN ANOTHER HOLE.

BUT EV'RYTIME YOU PULL ME OUT,
I FIND IT HARDER NOT TO SEE,
THAT WE CAN BUILD A BETTER LIFE
IF I CAN TRY TO FIND THE OTHER ME, MM-MM.

THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER BE THE GLAD ONE,
YEH, THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER PLAY THE FOOL.
SAID, I WANNA BE THE KIND OF ME
THAT DOESN'T LET YOU DOWN AS A RULE.

BUT IF I EVER HURT YOU,
WELL, YOU KNOW THAT IT'S NOT REAL.
IT'S NOT EASY LIVING BY YOURSELF,
SO IMAGINE HOW I FEEL.

I WISH THAT I COULD TAKE IT BACK,
I'D LIKE TO MAKE A DIFF'RENT MODE.
AND IF YOU LET ME TRY AGAIN,
I'LL HAVE A BETTER ATTITUDE.

WELL, I KNOW THAT ONE AND ONE MAKE TWO,
AND THAT'S WHAT I WANT US TO BE.
I REALLY WOULD APPRECIATE IT,
IF YOU'D HELP ME FIND THE OTHER ME.

UH-UH, YEAH, YEAH.

WELL, THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER BE THE GLAD ONE,
THE OTHER ME RATHER PLAY THE FOOL.
BUT I WANNA BE THE KIND OF ME
THAT DOESN'T LET YOU DOWN AS A RULE.

UH, UH, UH, UH, UH, UH.

DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO,
DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO-DOO,
DOO-DOO-DOO, DOO-DOO-DOO,
DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO,

THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER BE THE GLAD ONE,
AND THE OTHER ME WOULD RATHER PLAY THE FOOL.
AND I WANNA BE THE KIND OF ME
WHO DOESN'T LET YOU DOWN AS A RULE.
