lyrics

I WISHED FOR SO MUCH

I wished for so much, you gave me so little.
Where are you now in time, play me like your fiddle.
I’m working for you now, and you only.
Why did you make me so very lonely?

The sun is not shining, because you’re not here.
Why is it that you tread where there is no fear.
People believe in you, there is nothing in this space,
That you have not touched, get me out of the rat race.

They talk to you every day, like you are right there,
But you’re only there for the ministers that care.
They grace you and speak to you every day.
They are the ones that do not pay.

If karma is real, then I want my life back,
Cause you screwed me over, treat me like a cul de sac.
If you were my light, to take me out within the night,
I would love and speak to you all night long.

Work is such a pity, because it’s in the city.
The lights are all blinding. My contract is binding.
If only you believed long enough…
I’d leave you here like you left me?

Finally I had hope, in all you could approve.
When finally I get there you ask me to move.
I’ve taken my spot right next to you,
When you speak to me you speak right through.

I wished for so much, you gave me so little.
Where are you now in time, play me like your fiddle.
I’m working for you now, and you only.
Why did you make me so very lonely?

Ooooh, there is nothing in this place,
That you have not touched, get me out of the rat race.
They grace you and speak to you every day.
They are the ones that do not pay.

Get me out of the rat race.
