I wish I could write a love song strong enough to make the strongest men shiver weak in their beds
And I wish I could sing that love song loud enough to bring the doubted men back from the dead
I would, I would, but I stay at home instead

I wish I could paint a picture bold enough to make the oldest men shake in their strife
And I want that picture to offend enough so people wanna end my artistic life
I would, I would, but instead I paint with a knife

Oh, do you ever get that feeling
Like you just can't do anything right?
Oh, do you feel your scars stop healing
And you wanna reach to the stars and turn out their lights?

I wish I could sing a song so beautifully that all the world might see and want to hear
And I wish that the songs I sing would bend and ring and that the notes would be crystal clear
I would, I would, but I close my mouth out of fear

I wish that the words I said would be so kind that they would touch your mind and your heart would change
And I wish that you'd think about the words I said until you bled them out to this world sad and strange
You would, you would, but you're something I cannot tame

Oh, do you ever get that feeling
Like everything you know is out of your control?
Oh, do you feel your heart stop healing
And you're scared that it will never be whole?

I wish that I could be someone strong enough
