Lyrics

Tears in the wishing well - Oh, what a story they tell:
Of shattered dreams and hopes run dry.
You come to the wishing well to cry.

Tears in the wishing well - you're wearing charms and casting spells.
So many times your dreams denied,
You come to the wishing well to cry.

I might not be what you intended.
I see you come here all the time.
I wish your broken heart was mended.
For that I wish upon this dime.

And even though I might be wrong,
Wishing won't do any harm.
I want you to know that I'll be waiting
If you want to let me walk you home.

Tears in the wishing well - Oh, what a story they tell:
Of shattered dreams and hopes run dry.
You come to the wishing well to cry.
Or is it fate that you and I
Would come to the wishing well to cry?
