WISH I COULD BE LIKE JESUS MORE
INSTEAD OF ALWAYS GETTING SORE
WISH I CONTROLLED MY DESTINY
INSTEAD OF IT CONTROLLING ME
WISH I COULD TAME THE SAVAGE BEAST
WISH I COULD TAME MYSELF AT LEAST
THEN I COULD TAME THE OTHER GUYS
THEN I COULD CHANGE THE WORLD

BUT I CAN'T CHANGE
WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND
I CAN ONLY REACT TO A LINE IN THE SAND
SO I RANT AND I RAVE
TILL I THINK THAT I'M BRAVE
BUT NOTHING GETS DONE IN THE END

WISH I COULD SAIL OUT TO THE BRINK
AND NEVER FEAR WHAT PEOPLE THINK
WISH I COULD MAKE MY LIFE'S DESIGN
AND KNOW THAT IT WAS TRULY MINE
WISH I COULD TRUST MY COMPASS MORE
NOT BE AFRAID TO LEAVE THE SHORE
FOR ALL MY CASTLES ON THE SAND
WASH OUT TO SEA IN TIME

WHY SHOULD I CARE
IF NO ONE WRITES ON MY GRAVE
HERE LIES A PERSON WHO ALWAYS BEHAVED
CAUSE NO ONE IS SAVED
BY NOT MAKING WAVES
DESPITE HOW WE TRY TO PRETEND
AND THE SPIRIT SAYS
COME, TAKE MY HAND
I WILL MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
COME, TAKE MY HAND
IN THE MORNING I WILL TAKE THE
TIDE WITH YOU

WISH I COULD BE 16 AGAIN
AND KNOW WHAT I KNOW NOW BACK THEN
I WONDER WHAT MY LIFE WOULD BE
IF I COULD'VE DONE THINGS DIFFERENTLY
BUT THAT WAS THEN AND THIS IS NOW
I'LL HAVE TO GET ALONG SOMEHOW
WITH WHAT THE WORLD HAS GIVEN ME
INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME

'CAUSE I CAN'T CHANGE
IF I NEVER BEGIN
AIN'T NO USE IN ME WORRYING 'BOUT
WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN
SO I LEARN AS I GO
'CAUSE YOU JUST NEVER KNOW
WHAT'S WAITING FOR YOU
'ROUND THE BEND

COME, TAKE MY HAND
WE WILL MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE
COME, TAKE MY HAND
WHEN YOU SEE YOURSELF IN SOMEONE
AND THEY SEE THEMSELVES IN YOU
AND YOU CHASE YOUR DREAMS TOGETHER
ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
