“wondershank” is probably too high for me to sing properly, but you get the idea…
- wondershank (Christensen)
- if i could see (Christensen)
wondershank i've been standing outside for thirteen months and thirteen days i'm waiting 'till the time is right to shut my mouth and turn and walk away i don't know if you can hear me i don't know if you still care i can think of things i'd rather do but here i am, still waiting for you i'm walking by our favorite haunts and looking out for signs of you i tell myself it's easier this way soon enough i'll believe myself, too time is never kind to those who wish for it to pass and i've been wishing for a long, long, long time if i could see sit still and i'll tell you a story written in some other place or time told by those who wanted to remember an echo of a song sung, so sublime if i could see far into the future would i see the outcome of our lives? those things that tied us two together and the words that cut us up like knives i guess this told me something but the truth was more than i could face you can't convince someone to love you but i couldn't think of how to go on living until today to my chagrin the story ends here there is no happy ending to this tale we choose the battles we engage in there are some tests you pass and some you fail for now i'll watch you sleeping and tell my friends i didn't really care we always hurt the ones we cherish so why am i the one who has an ego to repair?
