Wishful Thinking

This song is by Duncan Sheik and appears on the movie soundtrack Great Expectations (1998).

Listen to the waves
Everything communicates
Will it ever be
Anything more than wishful thinking?

Oh no, there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time will you survive?

Feel the blades of grass
How it brings you back
It will always be
Only as green
As you can see

Oh no, there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time will you survive?
Oh yeah, fooled again
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame but wishful thinking

Little breakdowns in coastal towns
They come suddenly
Crashing over you
They come easily
I'm falling through the skies
And frozen places

Oh no, there you go
Looked away and missed the show
How much wasted time will you survive?
Oh yeah, fooled again
I don't know how and I don't know when
Not much else to blame but wishful thinking

And I try to realise that I needn't look any further
The whole of the universe is plain to see
And I try not to rely on another world or the future
The whole of the universe is a mystery

And it gets me over
It gets me over you, oh
And it gets me over
It gets me over you
