Delta Goodrem Lyrics

Mistaken Identity

words & music by Delta Goodrem, billymann

The girl in the chair with the long golden hair
Well that used to be me
A flirtatious smile, unpredictably wild
Always trying to please
I was always walking one step ahead
Or so I thought until the monster crawled into my bed
Rewind and erase that shock look on your face
Just 'cause your mona lisa is dead

A million words a thousand days

Chorus

The girl I used to be
Has a terrible case of mistaken identity
And yesterday's girl is not what you see
It's a terrible case of mistaken identity

The sun likes to rise and the moon likes to fall
And that's kinda like my life (kinda like my life)
I've played the role of the nice girl next door
Who gets cut like a knife
Now I'm not looking for apology eyes
And I don't want to spend a night on a bed of beautiful lies
Erase and rewind leave that sick girl behind and fast forward, fast forward

A thousand days

Chorus

The girl I used to be
Has a terrible case of mistaken identity
And yesterday's girl is not what you see
It's a terrible case of mistaken identity

That's not me, that's just not me
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh

That's not me

The girl that (girl that) I used to be
Has a terrible case of mistaken identity
And yesterday's girl is not what you see
It's a terrible case of mistaken identity

(The girl that I used to be)
(Has a terrible case of mistaken identity)
(And yesterday's girl is not what you see)
(It's a terrible case of mistaken identity)

That was the girl that use to be,
Terrible case of mistaken identity
That was the girl that use to be,
Terrible case of mistaken identity
