I wish I drank tequila
I wish I stayed up late
But lately when the sandman comes
You know I just can’t wait
No lately I can’t wait

And we packed up all your boxes
It’s all been hauled away
I never stare at walls so bare
Cause something always stays
Yeah something of you stays

And I wanna shout from my guitar
Come out come out wherever you are
The joke is over open your eyes
A heart like yours it never dies
And I found your keys behind your chair
I still can see you sitting there
This isn’t funny don’t fool around
You let me go… you let me down

And I guess I’m still pretty angry
And I don’t want to be
I don’t know which was the bigger waste of time
Missing you or wishing instead it was me

I wish I walked on water
Pulling rabbits from my sleeve
Guessing cards and saving everyone
I wish I still believed

That I could also channel voices
That I’ve endured the burning blade
That I could make some of your choices
I wish I weren’t afraid
Of those choices that you made

Like I could give you what you need
So ally ally oxen free
The game is up and I give in
So show yourself so that you can win
Come claim your prize and I don’t care
I still can see you standing there
How could you leave, how could you lie
You cut me off in mid reply

And I guess I’m still pretty angry
And I don’t want to be
I don’t know which was the bigger waste of time
Missing you or wishing instead it was me

The will to win the urge to race
I still can see it on your face
Thought I’d keep up but only crashed
I wasn’t built to move that fast
Thought I could match you stride for stride
But I was on the other side
And holding onto the safety rail
With knuckles white complexion pale
A cloud of dust and you were gone
Thought I would catch you later on
I limped behind your race was won
But were you racing or on the run?
How you enjoyed, you loved to drive
And I’m destroyed… cause I’m alive

And I guess I’m still pretty angry
And I don’t want to be
I don’t know which was the bigger waste of time
Missing you or wishing instead it was me

And I guess I’m still pretty angry
And I don’t want to be
I don’t know which was the bigger waste of time
Missing you
