Well if we had the words in times like these
We wouldn’t have to stare
We’d both know what to say
And how to pray the things to do to save the day
Some will call it sacrifice
They’ll look at this and never see
The beauty or how much it means
The blood that runs inside of me
I know you understand
That there’s no map for this, no plan

And the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, not a moment is gone
We’ll pick up where we left off

It’s like the world is draped in a camouflage
And sometimes never what it seems
Everyone’s got different things
They hide behind or try to be
But the things I carry with me
All remind me who I am
When so much of me is not with me
What matters most is what I leave
Behind for you to keep
Yeah, so smile when you think of me

And though the way we say goodbye
Is not the way that anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
I could blink, and not a moment is gone
Yeah we’ll pick up where we left off

Oh the way we say goodbye
Is not the way the anyone would do
Like a wave out on the ocean
I will always come right back to you
Nothing changed, nothing fades, nothing lost
And we pick up where we left off

i wish i was

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

So go on, say what you want to
I’m not gonna stop you
You can blame it all on me

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
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hmmmmm

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

So go on, hate me if you have to
I hate myself too
‘Cause as much as I want to be

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
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was

Go on, hate me if you have to
I still care about you
Hmm, as much as I want to be

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

Oh, ’cause you’re looking for true love
And I’m not the one
But I wish, but I wish I was
Hmm, I wish, oh I wish I was
Hoo, mmm
Oh oh oh

on my own

And now I’m all alone again,
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home, without a friend,
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
Now I can make believe he’s here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I’m happy
With the company I’m keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

On my own
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone
I walk with him til morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain, the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever

And I know it’s only in my mind
That I’m talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there’s a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river’s just a river
Without him,
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I’m learning
All my life
I’ve only been pretending
Without me
His world will go on turning
A world that’s full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own
