Track 2 on 'Suitcase - a live collection' album

lyrics

WISHING WELL

VERSE 1
THERE’S A FIRE IN THE HOUSE, HOW DO WE PUT IT OUT?
THERE’S A PIPE ABOUT TO BURST, AND WATER’S LEAKING OUT
THERE’S JUST FOUR WALLS AND A CEILING, AND A BATTLE IN BETWEEN
TO SAVE OURSELVES FROM TURNING, HEARTLESS AND MEAN
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
CHORUS 1
NEW LIFE BEHOLD
I WANT TO TEACH ME SOMETHING BEFORE I GET TOO OLD
I WANT TO MAKE THE HOURS MEAN SOMETHING IN THEMSELVES
AND THE DAYS MARKED OUT WITH DIFFERENCE
NOT LOST IN A WISHING WELL
VERSE 2
NOT MUCH SENSE IN WHAT I’M DOING, NOT MUCH SENSE IN CHASING COIN
RELENTLESSLY PURSUING, WHAT I’D ACCIDENTALLY JOINED
DREAM OF A LIBERATION, TO STAND UP AND GET OUT
WHAT A DAY THAT WOULD BE, MY ANGELS WOULD SHOUT
ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON
CHORUS 2
FAITH IN US, HEAVE HO
MAKE IT COUNT EACH SECOND AND FAITH WILL GROW
THE WIND WILL BE BEHIND US RUNNING BY OUR SIDE
AND LOVE UNFORGOTTEN OUR NEW SUNRISE
MID 8
TWIST THAT KNIFE OUT
IT’S IN YOUR SIDE
THE PAIN IS THERE
LEAN ON ME NOW
TWISTED THAT KNIFE IN
DON’T LEAVE IT THERE
GONE…
CHORUS 1
CHORUS 2
CHORUS 1
