Yeah, I wish you could see
That I really could shine, shine -
I wish you could see
With your dark blonde voice
And your mud-stumble shoes
And your social security cheque, you can't lose
You could offer me injury - I won't refuse
You're constantly gaining but you give what you choose

Oh, how did you ever learn
To talk so that people scream?
Oh how did you learn
With your brown eyes waiting for someone to drown
And your black leather wardrobe and your Brando-boy frown
In the way that an army can cancel a town,
You've only to half grin and I'm on the ground

Yeah, I wish I was good
To leave behind all false dreams
I wish I was good
While the lines on your face talk of times yet unknown
And your knuckles are white with the seeds to be sown
I'd sacrifice solitude to know you alone
But I can't give my soul and I won't take you home
With your brown eyes waiting for someone to drown
And your fall apart wardrobe and your Brando-boy frown
In the way that an army can cancel a town,
You've only to half grin and I'm on the ground
With your dark blonde voice and your mud-stumble shoes,
Your social security cheque, you can't lose
Offer me injury, I won't refuse
While you're constantly gaining, you give what you choose

I wish I was good
Maybe some day…
