i once said
that you were a star
for me to wish upon,
but i was wrong.

for some time now,
i've been distraught.
and for lack of a better word,
i'm not an island.

if there's no truth
and if there's no life,
then i'm fairly sure
i don't want to die.

because i've tried hard
most of the time.
and for lack of a better word,
i'm not an island.

when we die all alone,
if you're God then take us home.
but if you're not we'll be waiting by and by.

because all our fathers have said,
"we are prodigals at best.
and we will meet one day in that by and by."
