threw pennies into the wishing well
hopeing to get the best lie it'll sell
a quick fix to a broken heart beat
a battle plan to escape a bad retreat

walked a mile in a stranger's shoes
got lost looking for some truth
a reason to the questions left to me
a strength to swallow and let it be

now after all, my wish didn't come true
and i'm left with someone else's shoes
there you go holding the hand of another
there i go wishing you were my lover
