“Wishlist” by Pearl Jam

“I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on. I wish I was the verb ‘to trust’ and never let you down.”

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me

I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro’s hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on

I wish…
I wish..

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
