Woke up today to everything grey
And all that I saw just kept going on and on

Sweep all the pieces under the bed
Close all the curtains and cover my head

CHORUS:

And what you wish for for
Won't come true
You aren't surprised, love, are you?

If this serenade is not what you want
It's just how it is, it keeps going on and on

(SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH ABOVE 2 LINES)

Repeat after me
Just a little bit closer
And do what I say
Caught up in a lie
It won't change a thing
Got a little bit colder
It keeps going on and on

Come out, come out wherever you are
Would you do it all over, right from the start

CHORUS:

And what you wish for
Won't come true
You aren't surprised, love, are you?

So what you wish for
Won't come true
You aren't surprised, love, are you?

BRIDGE:

Once had this dream
Crashed down in Oz
Not black and white
But where the colors are
I never dreamed that I would let it go

And I would get what I deserve
Leave all the secrets under the bed
Open the curtains forget what I said

CHORUS:

And what you wish for
Could come true
You aren't surprised, love, are you?

So what you wish for
Could come true
You act surprised, love, are you?
