lyrics

There’s the way things are
And the way that they could be
I got pretty good
At living in between

All those people on the tv screen
Playing out my favorite dream
Made it seem like something we could touch
A home, a family
Our own little magnolia tree
But it was just something we watched

And you say
Can’t miss what you never had
But I do

I was living on fumes
But now I miss the smell
That oilcan shimmer of hope that says
You never can tell

Now you’re running as fast as you can
Away from this never-never land
Where no pixie dust ever made us fly

But I’m still on my window sill
Watching the night sky
Wishing I were wishing you’d arrive

And you say
Can’t miss what you never had
But I do

All these what ifs and wonderings
All my hoping that something
Could make this wish true

Can’t miss what you never had
But I do
