If you had three wishes Tell me what they'd be A fancy car, a new guitar Or that money grows on trees If I had three wishes I tell you what they'd be If I had three wishes You would be all three You know how the rules go You can't wish for world peace Or wish for love from anyone And we're letting old friends be You can't wish for more wishes But that don't bother me Cause if I had three wishes You would be all three I could say I wanna fly But that would get old after a while A million things that I could do But they'd be nothing without you So I can't think of anything If you had three wishes Do you know what they'd be Would one get saved for a rainy day Or for someone more in need If I had three wishes I tell you what they'd be If I had three wishes You would be all three

The attitudes of strangers The secrets of my friends The old familiar feeling The world is gonna end The girl who broke my heart up And every word she said Don’t matter to me right now Cause you are in my head The where the hell I’m going The what I’ve never done The infinite unknowing Of what we’ll all become The cracks upon the pavement On which I never tread That doesn’t bother me somehow Cause you are in my head The sky’s falling in Time’s running out And where to begin Is always in doubt And life isn’t fair That much is true But I just don’t care when I’m thinking of you Thinking of you All the tea in China The wonders of the world The hearts that beat inside us The diamonds and the pearls And all the earthly treasures I haven’t got to yet I ain’t got time for that right now Cause you are in my head I ain’t got time for that right now Cause you are in my head

Time is like a sea that takes us to the river When you’re close to me, I can see forever They can watch the world drift by I'll just look into your eyes The sun can set the sun can rise We've got the prize The day can turn into the night Like this til the end of time Cause we have got the prize You have my whole mind more than satisfaction We are intertwined there are no distractions, They can try to win the race I’ll keep looking at your face You’re the only thing I chase Cause we’ve got the prize I already finished first I already won the purse Cause we have got the prize The sun can set the sun can rise Like this til the end of time Cause we have got the prize

What else could the ocean be What else is the sea But a hundred million drops of water What else but a memory Of faded memories Was everything that came before you And I don't know Where we'll go Or where we're gonna be I don't know, much at all But when i think of you I do Roll the dice again to see The roads we choose to tread Then go whichever way you want to What else could I ever be But the man who lost his head And let his cold cold heart adore you And I don't know Where we'll go Or where we're gonna be I don't know, much at all But when i think of you I do I won't fight it anymore As we wash up on the shore I still love you I do What else could the ocean be What else is the sea But a hundred million drops of water

I can't believe it's so hard to recall A time with no clouds in the sky And this year's so different, it just seems to be So cold here without you and I Angels, cry for the world with me They know, how this was meant to be Somehow, it's not quite the same anymore Let's blame the weather Let's blame the rain That something between us Aint somehow the same Let's blame the weather It's easy that way I'll meet you wherever Some fine day Somehow I missed what you needed from me We drifted apart on the breeze What will it take to forget and forgive And save us an ocean of tears Angels, cry for the world with me They know, it's not how it's meant to be Somehow it's not quite the same anymore Let's blame the weather Lets blame the rain That something between us Just isn't the same Let's blame the weather It's better that way I'll meet you wherever Some fine day Let's blame the weather Let's blame the weather

Look out the window it’s all horizons and halos Holding a moment healing the scars so they don’t show Someone say something to crush all the noise that surrounds us If I catch a bullet then maybe we can make it through this You and me Take back time Loved you from the start Like a stone Fell so hard Racing through my heart Take my hand And sing your song Falling’s not so hard Higher ground Don’t look down And here in this moment, we can defy gravity Counting the tears til a month was a year to a pale glow Wish there was something that I could unsay so you won’t go Losing my time in the sadness always seemed heaven sent Losing my head like the rain through the cracks in the pavement You and me Take back time Loved you from the start Like a stone Fell so hard Racing through my heart Take my hand And sing your song Falling’s not so hard Higher ground Don’t look down And here in this moment, we can defy gravity Sing your song Sing your song again for me

Visions of nothing and thoughts I’ve forgotten And everything is five thousand miles now Five thousand miles now Five thousand miles And all I can promise is all that I’ve got is a moment And that’s just five thousand miles now Five thousand miles now Five thousand miles And it’s hard to explain but you know that If I could only see your hands I know that in a split second you’d understand The stars and the gutter and one or the other And everything is five thousand miles now Five thousand miles now Five thousand miles You get what you’re given if I’m not mistaken I think all I’m thinking is five thousand miles now Five thousand miles now Five thousand miles

Take these streets And tear them down They're empty anyhow Take this heart And pull it out I don't need it now You The night has lost To the sun Another day's begun How come this city Carries on? Don't they know you're gone You So many live wires Ways to flow For ones and for zeros So why the silence And wires crossed And why are you still lost You

Stop all the clocks Just breathe it in The silent birdsong The what might have been And I wish you were here with me The chances that we take The perfect mess we make A love that slips away You’ll never catch me no The clouds in the sky In love I believe The rose tinted lies All lost in the sea And I wish you were here with me A million grains of sand Slipping through my hands I’ll try to understand You’ll never catch me no A moment lost in time A love I can’t deny A miracle I swear I wish that you were here Now it is dark The moon’s hanging high And all that you are Just slips back in time And I wish you were here with me

Oh my love, my angel I hope you hear me In my dreams My memories And all that's in between And I go on It's only nothing at all, out of sight It's just so long We'll be together I'm sure By starlight Forever, and ever You'll be a part of me And somewhere You'll be there In all that I believe And I go on It's only nothing at all, out of sight It's just so long We'll be together I'm sure By starlight Nothing is hurt And nothing is lost In a moment, we'll be together I'm sure Oh my love, my angel I'm looking out for you Your colours Will be there In all I ever do And I go on It's only nothing at all, out of sight It's just so long We'll be together I'm sure By starlight

And we’re talking face to face And I’m trusting my own judgement And you’re staring into space And I’m trying to take you to all the furthest places that I know But on a clear day, you can still see home If I pretend I’m all alone And all I can see are ones and zeroes And heaven forbid that they should know anything And for the thousandth time I’m going just as fast as I can go And way up high I swear you turned away Looking down The city looks like falling And one more chance That I’ve already blew No escape But why would you want to And baby did you know They faked the moon landing Fooling everybody To keep us together And baby did you hear They never really made it They faked the moon landing We’re stuck here forever And baby did you hear They faked the moon landing They’ve never really been there at all
