“Like To Be You” by Shawn Mendes Lyrics

Don’t cry, or do whatever makes you feel comfortable
I’m tired, too
There’s nothin’ left to say, let’s call a truce
‘Cause I don’t really wanna go to bed like this

I’m so sorry
That we’re still stuck in the middle
I’m so sorry
‘Cause in the moment I

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like but I’m dying to
If I could put myself in your shoes
Then I know what it’s like to be you

Can I kiss you or not?
‘Cause I’m not really sure right now of what you want
Are you still mad at me? I’m hopin’ not
‘Cause maybe we could go to the movies
I know that always cheers us up, hey

I’m so sorry
Though we’re still stuck in the middle
Yeah, I’m so sorry
‘Cause in the moment I

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like but I’m dying to
If I could put myself in your shoes
Then I know what it’s like to be you

Tell me what’s inside of your head
No matter what you say I won’t love you less
And I’d be lying if I said that I do

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like to be you

I get worried
I might lose you a little
Every time we
Every time we argue and get caught up in the moment

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like but I’m dying to
If I could put myself in your shoes
Then I know what it’s like to be you

So tell me what’s inside of your head
No matter what you say I won’t love you less
And I’d be lying if I said that I do

I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like to be you
I don’t know what it’s like
