Lyrics - I Wish You Well

Back

I'm gonna check my scars at home

Gonna cash my chips and roam

Gonna walk before I fade to black

I'm gonna write a new resume

I'm gonna write you off the page

I'm gonna take what we might take away

And you will find a brighter day

And in another year

The pain will disappear and I

Will look back on this life as if it were a scene

In a film somebody made for you and me

I wish you well

She wants to be set free

Wants the space to feel love

And be angry and I watch her bounce off the walls

While the chips they start to fall

And then in a little while I see

That distant smile returning

Just like a ghost in a dream

That we had way back when

Then she'll turn and smile and say

Come again

And in another year

The pain will disappear

We'll look back on this life as if it were a scene

In a film somebody made about you and me

I cannot believe there's

nothing left to save

Hard as a hammer she wants me

To come again and again

I'm down on my knees

Won't you come again

Don't you need relief oh

And in another year

The pain will disappear

And I will look back on this life

As if it were a scene

And in a little while

I'll see that distant smile returning

Just like back in the days

When we were so naive

In a film somebody made for you and me

I wish you well
