Here I sit smack dab in the middle
Tomorrow is a crazy riddle
I wish I had a crystal ball
I wish I could see 5 years on

Like candle rockets you and I
Oos and ahs and shouts and sighs
Is this the storm before the calm?
I wish I could see five years on

But I can't and you don't
And you try and I won't
Broken trust can be repaired
But it'll take some time
To get us there
But I will and you won't
You try and I don't
We lose a little higher ground
Every time we go around

We always seem to look behind
And say if we'd known at the time
But there's no one here to read my palm
I wish I could see five years on

If we fail or if we fly
No one can say that we didn't try
Has the final card been drawn?
I wish I could see five years on

But I can't and you don't
And you try and I won't
Broken trust can be repaired
But it'll take some time
To get us there
But I will and you won't
You try and I don't
We lose a little higher ground
Every time we go around

Round and round
We're lost, then we're found
We can't change words
The ones I wish we hadn't heard

There's no map or 12-step guide
We do what we can't justify
And it's always dark before the dawn
How I wish I could see five years on

I promise you promise me
And still there are no guarantees
Is this the last verse of the song?
I wish I could see five years on

But I can't and you don't
And you try and I won't
Broken trust can be repaired
But it'll take some time
To get us there
But I will and you won't
You try and I don't
We lose a little higher ground
Every time we go around
