“A Wish” Lyrics

I wish to feel smaller
Under your sheets
I wish for the whole truth
Every time you speak
I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep…

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans
Ignoring me the morning after isn’t enough
And I swear I’m gonna cry
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

And I wish to feel smaller under your hands
Though you seem satisfied
As you slip mine down your pants
And I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
As you lift up my shirt after asking politely

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I am or pretend to be
‘Cause it’s her you’ll always love and it’s her I’ll always envy
I want to end this now so dreams of you won’t keep me up
But I swear I’m gonna cry
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

And it’s hard to find
What I want
When it’s buried beneath the biggest rock
I could pay lots of money
To help lift it with machines
But I’m not sure you’d cooperate
Not sure you’d come clean

And I wish to feel smaller
Under your sheets
I wish for the whole truth
Every time you speak
And I’m thinkin’ about how you care half as much for me
As I watch you arrive, smoke cigarettes, sleep…

And I guess it doesn’t matter what I say or what I seem
You stuck what I felt for you in the pocket of your jeans.
Ignoring me the morning after isn’t enough
And I swear I’m gonna cry
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough

Yeah, I swear I’m gonna cry
I’m sick of tryin’ to be tough

And my blood won’t stick
To the confines of my veins
And your heart
Is gonna tear mine away

Is gonna tear mine away

  2. I adore this song… and all of these songs for that matter. I find them totally relatable, and it’s funny how some lyrics are so angry, but sang in such an adorable voice! I simply adore it.

  3. This song reminds me of every relationshp I`ve ever had. I love it. It helps me cope with past memories. It`s beautiful.

  4. Wow.

    x3

  5. i love this song beyond reasoning. it reminds me of just about any time that i’ve liked someone who could never love me back and it’s so inspiring as well. gregory and the hawk, your lyrics are intangibly amazing, and i love you for that.

  6. yes,…
    its a very nice song.
    it brought a tear to my eye actually..
    very true,.
    live it up.
    smoke the gonja.
    eat the wango!

  7. first of all, gregory and the hawk is the greatest band in the whole world and this is by far my favorite song just because the lyrics relate to every single relationship i have ever been in.
    this song makes me feel a lot from my past and i love it

  8. This is my favorite song by them.

    And probably my favorite song in general.

    I think everyone can relate to this. Maybe not fully, but at least to an other extent. There was always a girl before you that he can’t seem to get his mind off of and you’re just there.

    It stings, but this song makes it so much better.

    <33

  9. I listened to this song nearly a year after getting out of this exact relationship and only a week after the boy decided to take interest in me. I almost cried when I realized what I had just found just flipping through my friend’s music. <3

  10. I always listen to this song when I want to remember a better time. This song always reminds me of one particular girl, and the feeling and essence of fall. I love this song so much, I put it on repeat and listen to it constantly to maintain a good feeling.

    🙂
