wishing well lyrics – counting crows

did you think you were unbelievable
then, i see that
twenty-four hours in a wishing well
thinking about drowning
thinking about pennies in heaven
i guess i’ll realize in a day or more
i guess i’ll tilt my head back in the rain
drown myself on sky
i guess i’ll realize in a day or more
i guess i’ll realize when i’m buried in the evidence
did you think you were irresponsible
well i don’t see that
one or two children on a workingman’s salary
doesn’t seem like a lot to ask
i guess i’ll realize in a day or more
i guess i’ll realize when her baby starts to cry
mothers in welfare lines
husbands who said good-bye
i think i realize
i think i realize, yeah
didn’t you wonder where your bright-eyed babyboy has gone
he’s sleeping in the bottom of a wishing well
whispering’ the ripples through the fates and changes
did you think you were young and beautiful
then, i see that
one or two people sliding gracefully together and apart
this sort of thing never lasts
i guess i’ll realize in a day or more
i guess i’ll realize when i’m twisting in the wind
after i say good-bye, i guess i’ll understand why
i guess i realize
i guess i realize
didn’t you wonder where your bright-eyed babyboy has gone
he’s a victim in the bottom of a wishing well
wishing he was anywhere but there and gone
and, didn’t anyone wonder where their bright-eyed babyboy has gone
he’s sleeping in the bottom of a wishing well
wishing he wasn’t suffering the same dreams all day long
i think i realize
i think i realize
ahh baby, i think that i realize
i think i realize..
