lyrics

Wish

I couldn’t have saved you if I tried
I was coming next on the water slide
I heard an angel broke your fall
You got your happy ending after all

I guess that I’m still running
I guess that I’m stain free
Maybe it’s a good thing nobody waits for me

But don’t you wish we’d played it different
Don’t you wish that we had more time
Don’t you wish we’d tried a little harder through the bad times

This talk of sub-soft misery
I hope it washes over me
I’ll make you famous the man says
He thinks he’s Emilio Estevez

I guess that I’m still joking
You know I’ll never change
Maybe that’s the reason you up and went away

But don’t you wish we’d played it different
Don’t you wish that we had more time
Don’t you wish we’d tried a little harder through the bad times

Or do wish I was a secret
Do you wish you’d never met me
Do you wish it was that easy to protect me

Once a sinner always a sinner
You think I’m sad but I’m just bitter
When you’re a star there’s always a light on
Always a light on

Don’t you wish we’d played it different
Don’t you wish that we had more time
Don’t you wish we’d tried a little harder through the bad times

Or do wish I was a secret
Do you wish you’d never met me
Do you wish it was that easy to protect me
