Wish

Love... is that what you call this?
When my heart's ripped out... and there's constant rain
There is nothing... I want more than just one kiss
But it will never be... and I'm consumed by pain

Oh pain is what I've got because
Because you just won't let me in

I wish I didn't have to love you
I wish I could just turn off my heart
My soul is dying cause I love you
I've never been so torn apart... oh no...
Just open your heart...

Oh your face... just can't get your face off my mind
I think of you... even while I sleep, in my dreams
Your soul... I just want to reach for it
But the signs... they're all red, so it seems

The darkness has come over me
Because you just won't let me in

I wish I didn't have to love you
I wish I could just turn off my heart
My soul is dying cause I love you
I've never been so torn apart... oh no...
Just open your heart...

Would you please... I'm asking you one last time
Have you thought... to give this pour soul a try
I'm dying... thinking I'll never hold you
I'm broken down... can't you see me cry?

I'm empty, and I will always be
Because you just won't let me in

I wish I didn't have to love you
I wish I could just turn off my heart
My soul is dying cause I love you
I've never been so torn apart... oh no...
Just open your heart...

I wish I didn't have to love you
I wish I could just turn off my heart
My soul is dying cause I love you
I've never been so torn apart... oh no...
Why won't you open your heart?
