the king of wishful thinking lyrics – new found glory

(feat. patrick stump of fall out boy)

[from the movie “pretty woman”]
[originally by go west]

i don’t need to fall at your feet
just cause you cut me to the bone
and i won’t miss the way that you kiss me
we were never carved in stone

and if i don’t listen to the talk of the town
then maybe i can fool myself
i’ll get over you i know i will
i’ll pretend my ships not sinking
and i’ll tell myself i’m over you
because i am the king of wishful thinking
because i am the king of wishful thinking

i refuse to give into my blues
that’s not how its gonna be
and i deny the tears in my eyes
i don’t wanna let you see, no

that you had made a hole in my heart
and now i’ve got to fool myself
i’ll get over you i know i will
i’ll pretend my ships not sinking
and i’ll tell myself i’m over you

because i am the king of wishful thinking
i’ll get over you i know i will
i’ll pretend my ships not sinking
and i’ll tell myself i’m over you
because i’m the king of wishful thinking

if i don’t listen to the talk of the town
then maybe i can fool myself
i’ll get over you i know i will
i’ll pretend my ships not sinking
and i’ll tell myself i’m over you
because i’m the king of wishful thinking
i am the king of wishful thinking
i’ll get over you i know i will
you made a whole in my heart
but i won’t shed a tear for you
i’ll be the king of wishful thinking
(i’ll be the king of wishful)

i’ll get over you i know i will
i’ll pretend my hearts still beating
cause i’ve got no more tears for you
i am the king of wishful thinking
(king of wishful thinking) no
