“If You Could Be Anywhere” Lyrics

By Tom Felton

If I had a plane,
then where would I fly to?
If I had to use my brain for something else
tell me what would I do?

And if I had a strange conversation with a lady in a waiting room about leaving all this doom and gloom…

If you could be anywhere
where would you be?
If you could be anywhere
would you be there with me?

If I could be anywhere
I’d be there.

If I could be anywhere
I’d be there with you, girl.

Take my chances,
Fake my glances,
Wake those answers
anywhere but…

take my chances,
I’ll fake my glances,
Wake my answers,
anywhere but here.

I’ll do it anywhere but here.
I’ll do it anywhere but here.

  1. I believe at the end he doesn’t sing “oh oh” he sings “ye-ah”. Thanks for the lyrics though! I love the song!

    yayyyyyyyyyyyy TOM FELTON!!

  3. i love this song its like every song he makes it attracts you to it and the lyrics are just plain awesome!! ❗

  4. I adore you’re songs.
    Especially this one and Silhouettes in Sunsets.
    Keep writing songs, I’m addicted.

  5. this song is really good ^.~

    You’re soooo good in acting and singing
    and i’m from germany.

  6. I love the “take my chances, fake my glances” part. Why don’t u go put on your pants in france then? lol, love u anyway!


  7. I love the take my chances,
    fake my glances,
    Wait those answers part.
    But when I sing it it sounds terrible. Because I sing it like it’s meant to be sung in the states. Well AKA (NEW JERSEY).

    But the song sounds terrible when I definately for sure sing it. ( DID YOU ACTUALLY READ THAT… HOW EMBARRASING!!!!:)

    That sure is embarrasing to have like what thousands of people read that. SO now when I sing it I sing it with the BRITISH ACCENT. I think it sounds alot better. WOW.. I really have to SHUT MYSELF UP DON”T I… Ughhhhh… I am so stupid….



  9. I LOVE TOM FELTON!!!!!!!! he is the most gorgeous man in the world!!!! if only i were like 5 years older….. but i love him!!!!! haha my boyfriend is jealous of him >.< tom felton is the greatest man in the whole world!!! i <3 brits

  10. Maddi don’t be embarrassed of living in Jersey or the USA. You’re only 12, maybe 13, but that’s nothing to be ashamed of. Im 15 and laugh easily and am very gullable. By the way, never try to be sarcastic online. You always turn out sounding very stupid. You have a point though, Tom’s songs do sound better sung with a Brithish accent! Believe me I can’t sing to it any other way! Keep your head up Maddi, if Tom reads your comments, you’ll probably sound so cute he’ll laugh! Which is a good thing! Keep your head up and keep singing your way! Best Wishes Maddi!–Aubrie

  11. This song has a mixed meaning it seems to me. He seems to be trying to hard. I think he’s saying that he’ll go anywhere as long as she’s there with him?:( I really don’t know. Hey Tom, you really don’t want your fans to have to think about the meaning. You want it suttle but there. Meaning you want people to know the meaning, but you want to let them see it themselves. Don’t just spell it out for them. Make them think but not so much that they miss the true meaning entirely. Get it? Good. Other than that, brilliant song! Keep singing Tom, we’re all behind you.

  12. Great song!
    Best song actually, i love the feel of it.
    I sing and am learning to play guitar. one day wish i could be this famous, though the HP thing proabaly helped.

  13. wow, i mean,he’s amazing. i’ve been in love with him for about ten years now, but, who could blame me?

  14. I love this song. I had to look at the lyrics because for a while I thought (instead of wake those answers) that it said “wave those a**es anywhere but here”. which made me crack up but those are the wrong lyrics. o.O
    I love Tom Felton. He’s just as good a singer as an actor.

  15. i absolutely love the U.K. and everything from it, yet i live in between miami and the florida keys. when i found out my absolute favorite actor was a singer, this was the first song i listened to, its amazing! a step up from the beatles in my opinion. its really just such a difference between tom felton and draco malfoy though i love both!

  16. Hello. You have a fantastic singing voice 🙂

    I like all your songs. My favorites is under stars and If You Could Be Anywhere! 🙂

    When you do new songs? 🙂
    I look waiting to more music from you! 🙂

  17. Excuse me, but there is no second verse here!
    (If I had a clue, tell me what would I do?)

  18. True. I’m still thirteen. I can’t imagine if Justin Bieber would sing his songs. I think it will sound awful because he’s not British.

    Thirteen years old and already in second year high school. Maybe its different here in our country.

  19. i love tom!!! this song is one of many i adore.IF I COULD BE ANYWHERE ID BE THERE WITH HIMM!! ILY, TOM!

  20. I’m listening to it right now. It’s one of my faves. I wish i could put it on my mp3 so i could take it everywhere… I LUV IT! pls Tom, reply. </3 my heart is in pieces because I haven't met, or seen you in real person at all. I wish i could. Oh, man. You know how cool that would be? I was also wondering which FB was really your's because there's more than one. so…yeah. I know, alot to read, but tnx for reading it! 😀

  21. im not sure if he has a facebook but you can find him on twitter. He’s on like everyday. You can follow him on there. But I dont think any of the facbook accounts are real. Hope this helps!

  22. tom, ur so talented! you can sing, and act, wow… you are AMAZING this is my favorite song! haha its really cool.

  23. hahaha how could you say that? he’s good. but, maybe its his british accent, but he’s still really good. i like the lyrics. its really fun. he’s a really cool guy

  24. omg luv the songg…. although i havnt actually met him i thinkk he must have written the song 4 me…. looooooooooovee tom felton 2 bits….. go britts

  25. There is no way I would listen to Justin Bieber sing Tom Felton songs… it would not be good….

  26. ohhh… I like this song! 🙂 I saw it was on itunes and I had to buy it! I remember when I saw him sing it on youtube, my friend was like it sucks its not that good, so when I heard it I was like are you crazy?! I just love hearing him sing! Whenever I sing some of his songs, I can’t sing in a brittish accent so it ends up sounding southern…

  27. hello i love to see u saying that about me u must be a really big fan i love u so much for saying that some people say im gay any way im going out with jade oliva thank u so much x

  37. I wouldn’t be so surprised sometimes celebs are so full of themselves they don’t realize what they say until they post it

  38. Yeah ‘full of himself’, sheesh. Maybe he’s tired of people who have cemented him to Draco Malfoy permanently, and fail to see him as a real person in the midst of their frenzy.

    Just imagine if you were in a play a long time ago, let’s say ‘Cinderella’. You played a truly awesome wicked stepsister that stole the show and everyone loved you. You got newspaper reviews, interviews, people wrote you fan mail, etc.

    The show gets an encore performance, SEVEN TIMES.

    You still like playing Druscilla or whatever her name is, but now people who run into you on the street – while you aren’t even in costume – go ‘Hey Druscilla! You are the awesomest step-sister ever!’ or ‘Druscilla you b*tch, you leave poor Cinderella alone!’

    You can’t do anything without that name attached to you. Try to write a book? Try to write a song? People give feedback like ‘Oh, Druscilla’s writing a children’s book! Did you remember that part in the play where she slapped Cinderella? She was mean, but totally hot I’d so bang her, etc.”

    Not because YOU’RE hot or anything, not because YOU were a great actress, but because to certain people, the FICTIONAL CHARACTER that you played is just so much more important an entity than you are.

    Don’t you think that would get real annoying after oh, seven years?

    Sorry for the essay-long rant, but Tom Felton, the real person who wrote this awesome song, is not Draco Malfoy. If you want to give him props for being Draco, go to a HP related blog or site and fangirl all over the place. Paint the walls with your slobber over *there*.

    This place is Tom Felton’s. Give props to him for what he does, and what he writes and what he sings. It really is more impressive and beautiful than anything a fictional character like Draco Malfoy could do.

    Seriously, Draco Malfoy’s probably as tone-deaf as a post anyway. XD

  39. Beautiful song, I just found you while looking for new music! I like your lyrics too – very whimsical and sweet. I like love songs that are different.

  40. Tom, your music is so inspirational to me 🙂
    your songs are diffrent, not like the stuff on the radio. they are…fresh.
    i would be so happy if you recorded some new songs!
    lots of love , Nastja 🙂

  41. You really did inspire me to write my own song. My brother has a guitar and he’s teaching me, and my sisters and I are probably the biggest Harry Potter freaks you’ll meet. You’re a great actor and singer! C:

  42. I REALLY LOVE YOU TOM FELTON!!!!! every1 in class makes fun of me as I’M CRAZY FOR UUUUUU!!!! but i don’t care, I LOVE U!!!
    P.S sorry, but, i’m 11 years old, I’M weird, right?? BUT I’M AWESOME (but you’re more awesome than me <3)

  43. tom it was amasing,I really glorify you because of your personality,your play in movies and your songs,good luck 4ever
    sorry speaking english is really hard for me!I find words in google translate:D

  44. tom it was amasing,I really glorify you because of your personality,your play in movies and your songs,good luck 4ever
    sorry speaking english is really hard for me!I find words in google translate:D

  45. I do believe that you aren’t the real tom Felton. Kindly stop impersonating him.

  46. Tom you are the best artist ever. I truly love your songs. You have inspired me to write my own songs. You are the best person. I have all your songs. You seem extremely nice and I hope you write even more songs. Sorry I didn’t wish you happy birthday on this website but I did on Instagram. Thank you for being you.

  47. I love you Tom.
    You are my favorite actor and singer.
    You should know that they are lots of fan in Iran who love that to see you just for one time.
    I love you Draco and your group SLYTHERIN.

  48. hey tom.. i really love your voice.. and the lyrics and in totality i love you <3

  49. Hey Tom! M Kashish from India… M a huge fan of yours… You are a really good singer and I’m also good a singer… U are so cute! Please can you take my name?

  50. I love this song, I hear it straight into permanent loop so I can learn it xD
    sorry for my English:’D

    My favourite part is:
    “And if I had a strange conversation with a lady in a waiting room about leaving all this doom and gloom…”

  51. Alright dude. I feel that you don’t know Tom AT ALL. Tom is anything but full of himself.

    He’s a sweetheart. And I’m not saying this because I’m a fangirl or because he’s cute. He’s a sweetheart to every person he meets. He cares for his fan, probably more than most of the people do. And he’s just so amazingly human !

    You will see video of him performing on the streets of Czech or Seattle and no one in the crowd recognizes him. He just plays the guitar like any other street performer without flaunting about his fame. That’s the real Tom Felton. Selfless and kind.

    Stop criticizing everything you see even before you know what it is about. Try writing an entire song first and then criticize the others.

  52. tom, i really love you and your music and your voice! so good! and if you could be anywhere is my favorite song. i’m at almost every live and i’m a big fan greetings!
