One Worthless Wish

I was mourning the loss of something wonderful when I saw her first
And I was old and I was cold and I was in need of a bright light to guide me
And I saw it in her face and I was afraid

I was raised by heroes but I wound up dying anyway
It wasn’t a loss unless you think about it that way
‘Cause lives are only fun to watch in the action replay

One worthless wish
Infinitely repeated

It was dark and I sold my soul down the river
He’s a taker, then he’s a giver
The Devil knows the value of everything he trades

And I was wandering ’round through the sky like a scared little bird
And then I heard, the sunset was roaring my way like a freight train coming
The wisher keeps wishing when the drummer stops drumming

One worthless wish
Infinitely repeated…
