Why'd I turn on you and say those things
I didn't mean 'em
Wish you were bringing your love back to me
Instead of leavin'

But if wishes were horses I'd have a ranch
Come on and give me another chance
Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance

We used to drive through the canyons
And down to where the land meets the sea
I never knew what I had back there till you
Went away from me

But if wishes were horses I'd have a ranch
Come on and give me another chance
Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance

I was scared of standing on the edge
Of darkness looking in
I hurt you bad and now I wish
We could begin again

But if wishes were horses I'd have a ranch
Come on, give me another chance
Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance

Wish I could turn a sad and blue, blue day
Into something good
Wish I could somehow make it go away
I wish you understood

That if wishes were horses I'd have a ranch
Come on and give me another chance
Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance

Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance
Come on and give me, come on and give me
Come on and give me another chance
