wishful thinking lyrics – alphaville

sometimes i wish that you were dead
i wasn’t right to let you go away
i tried to kill the pain inside
but you were always on my mind
no matter where i go or stay

into the night still falls the rain
even the dogs stay home tonight
out on the streets, goin’ nowhere
just one direction in my thoughts

love can be magic, it can be a game
sometimes it’s tragic, sometimes a shame
words were my bullets, emotion my gun
i was a runner, now i’m on the run

sometimes i wish that you were dead
that is because you haunt me so
i wasn’t right to let you go away
i tried to kill the pain inside
but you are always on my mind
no matter where i go or stay

sometimes i dream my time away
and we’re together again
buy i know that can never be
and all my hopes are in vain

you were my treasure but i didn’t know
you were the sun in my life
thought i was dying when i realized
there’s just one chance to survive

sometimes i wish that you were dead
that is because you haunt me so
i wasn’t right to let you go away
i tried to kill the pain inside
but you are always on my mind
no matter where i go or stay

sometimes i wish that you were dead
sometimes i wish that you were dead
sometimes i wish that you were dead
sometimes i wish
sometimes i wish that you were dead

sometimes i wish that you were dead
that is because you haunt me so
i wasn’t right to let you go away
i tried to kill the pain inside
but you are always on my mind
no matter where i go or stay
