Once upon a time I loved a girl but she didn’t love me back.
Once upon a night I wished on a star but my dreams never came to pass.
Twice I think I hoped for the sun and not the rain pouring in.
But my cover flew away and the drops soaked through my skin.
I think I could wish for hard times and the dark,
And just to spite my soul the world would set ablaze from a single spark.
My money would pile high,
girls would wave as they walked by.
And the one thing can I say for this life,
Is no one ever got a damn thing from goodbye.
