Hurts – Wish lyrics

[Verse 1]
At the Piccadilly station
I felt my heartbeat racing
I didn't know no better
And on that Camberwell road
I found a mirror for my soul
And I didn't need no other

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I was accident prone
I fell head over heels with no warning
And in spite of my vertigo
I never felt myself falling

[Chorus]
And I wish I wish that I told you then what I realize now
And I wish I wish that I told you when you were still around

[Verse 2]
That night in Whitechapel girl
I know what should have happened
But I just left you standing there
Meanwhile I became a man from New York City to Japan
But that don't give me satisfaction, yeah

[Pre-Chorus 2]
We're only victims of timing
And on that cold summer night I know I am a fool for not trying

[Chorus]
And I wish I wish that I told you then what I realize now
And I wish I wish that I told you when you were still around

[Bridge]
I wish that I could rewrite all the things that we both let go
And I wish that I could just turn back the time and tell you
I wish I wish that I told you then what I realize now and I wish

[Chorus]
And I wish I wish that I told you then what I realize now
And I wish I wish that I told you when you were still around
