"Wishful Thinking" as written by and Duncan Sheik....
Listen to the waves,
Everything communicates
Will it ever be
Anything more than wishful thinking?

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?

Feel the blades of grass
How it brings you back
it will always be
Only as green as you can see

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again,
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

Little breakdowns
In coastal towns.
They come suddenly
Crashing over you.
They come easily.
I'm falling through the skies
And frozen places

Oh no there you go
Looked away and missed the show
how much wasted time
Will you survive?
Oh yeah fooled again,
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame
But wishful thinking

And I try to realize
That I needn't look any further
the whole of the universe
Is plain to see
And I try not to rely
On another world or the future
The whole of the universe is a mystery

And it gets me over
Yeah, it gets me over
and it gets me over
Yeah, it gets me over

    General Commentyou're missing the beauty in front of you because you're concerned with finding something even better, but you're only wasting life because the beauty is truly before you

    General Commentone of duncan's often overlooked and underrated songs. this song is one of my favourites. the best lyrics of the song are:

    And I try to realise
    That I needn't look
    Any further
    The whole of
    The universe
    Is plain to see
    And I try not to rely
    On another world
    Or the future
    The whole of
    The universe
    Is a mystery
