"Wishing I Was 23" is one of R5's first original songs, but wasn't officially released until their debut album Louder. It is only available on CDs bought at Target. 

Background Edit

According to Riker, "Wishing I Was 23" is about a girl from Glee,[1] who is speculated to be Dianna Agron, who plays Quinn Fabray. Ross Lynch was known to have a crush on Dianna, and some of Dianna's interests are mentioned in some of the lyrics such as Dianna being a millionaire, but still being kind, or 'not your typical rich girl', as well as being known for loving photography, and traveling, as she's been many places, so to say, 'she's been around the world'.

Lyrics Edit

[Intro]
Maybe she's just to old for me
Living in a teenage fantasy
Baby there's so much we could be
She's got me wishing
Wishing I was 23

[Verse 1]
Yeah, she's crazy but I don't care
She's sexy and she's a millionaire
The way she gets me is so unfair
Not you're typical rich girl

She's smoking hot, if you know what I mean
Tight jeans and she loves her photography
And everything that's in between
She's been around the world

[Pre-Chorus]
I know
She's graduated
And I'm not
Quite educated
I'm young, you know
Age is overrated

[Chorus]
Maybe she's just to old for me
Living in a teenage fantasy
Baby there's so much we could be
Every time I'm with her
Calling me a dreamer

Maybe she's just out of my reach
Maybe her boyfriend's a marine
Even though I'm nameless (Hey!)
She's famous (Hey!)
She's got me wishing
Wishing I was 23

Woah-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Wishing I was 23
Woah-oh
I've got her wishing
Uh-yeah

[Verse 2]
I think about her everyday
Going insane thinking about what to say
What am I doing anyway?
Am I even on her radar?

[Pre-Chorus]
And I know
She's graduated
And I'm not
Quite educated
I'm young, you know
Age is overrated

[Chorus]
Maybe she's just to old for me
Living in a teenage fantasy
Baby there's so much we could be
Every time I'm with her
Calling me a dreamer

Maybe she's just out of my reach
Maybe her boyfriend's a marine
Even though I'm nameless (Hey!)
She's famous (Hey!)
She's got me wishing
Wishing I was 23

Woah-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Wishing I was 23
Woah-oh

[Bridge]
And if I was older
She would let me take her
To watch the stars at night
We can dance we can kiss
Underneath moonlight

And if it got colder
She would let me hold her
Wrapped up in fairytales
Got to wake up from this dream

Maybe she's just to old for me
Maybe her boyfriend's a marine
Even though I'm nameless
She's famous
She's got me wishing

[Chorus]
Maybe she's just out of my reach
Maybe her boyfriend's a marine
Even though I'm nameless (Hey!)
She's famous (Hey!)
She's got me wishing
Wishing I was 23

[Outro]
Woah-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Wishing I was 23
Woah-oh
I've got her wishing
Wishing she was 17 (She's 17)

Woah-oh
Woah-oh-oh
Wishing I was 23
Wishing I was 23
