Secondhand Wishes

(Verse 1)
She only lets me half way in,
She doesn’t know where it all begins,
I’m sitting here waiting for the crash.
She only lets me see the picket fence,
She doesn’t know where it all went,
I’m sitting here staring at the past.
You play me like an acoustic guitar,
What should be easy is so damn hard.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.

(2nd Verse)
She only lets me see a ray of light,
She doesn’t know it’s not worth the fight,
I’d rather put your needs in front of mine.
She only lets me see a shade of warmth,
She doesn’t know what the future has in store,
I’d rather you see what you were trying to find.
You play like me like a southern violin,
Hopefully you can see no one wins.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.

Bridge:
I’m not afraid of the lightning in the dark,
I’m not afraid of the deep cut in my heart.
I’m not afraid of feeling the pouring rain,
I’m not afraid of the winds of change.
I’m only afraid of becoming numb…
I’m only afraid of what we will become.

Chorus:
Chards of lies in my frozen hands,
Dreams of love sinking in quicksand,
Secondhand wishes are never heard.
Walls of anger drowning in my ocean,
Lost and confused in all of my emotions,
Secondhand wishes are disappearing words.
