Farewell and goodbye

I see your wishes on the wall, and that's all right with me
I see you run to make a call, hoping that there's someone free
Your life and my life they don't touch at all, and that's no way to be
We've never seemed so far

What's real? what is true?
I´ll turn my back on you
Where're you goin'? where've you been?
Making wishes, watching dreams

It might be simple, it might be true, I might be overwhelmed by you
You might be empty, the way your eyes just look right through
It's such a mess now anyway, wish fulfillment every day
I don't believe you, now I can't hear a word you say

I see you shaking in the light, reading the headline news
The others they're not quite so bright, we want them to choose you
I could almost see your face tonight, singing simple rhythm'n'blues
You'll always be a star

Shake it baby! come'on scream!
Just see your face in a magazine
I doubt it! That score!
I can't stand it anymore

It's my favorite shot of you, you looked so pretty your eyes were true
I'm not on your side, in spite of everything you do
We only hold on blood on life, you on pretty pictures every night
Come wish beside me, don't you know you know what's right
