"I Wish I Was"
(Natalie Hemby / Ryan Hurd / Maren Morris)

On paper we go together
I know that we look the part
But almost never hangs on forever
I know I'm breaking your heart

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
So go on, say what you want to
I'm not gonna stop you
You can blame it all on me

[Chorus:]
I'm not the hero in the story
I'm not the girl that gets the glory
'Cause you're looking for true love
And I'm not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

Wish I could feel about you
The way you feel about me
But you can't make a heart say something
That it don't believe

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
So go on, hate me if you have to
I hate myself too
'Cause as much as I want to be

[Chorus:]
I'm not the hero in the story
I'm not the girl that gets the glory
'Cause you're looking for true love
And I'm not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was

[Pre-Chorus 3:]
Go on, hate me if you have to
I still care about you
As much as I want to be

[Chorus:]
I'm not the hero in the story
I'm not the girl that gets the glory
'Cause you're looking for true love
And I'm not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
