LYRICS

WISHING WELL (OPEN THE BARRICADES)

I recall when we were young,

We'd spend the days together under winter sun,

 

But what I wouldn't give for another kiss,

5 minutes more with you give me hours to relive.

 

Did we wanna know?

Where this was gonna go?

The things we'd have to change.

Aren’t worth saving anyway.

 

I'm a wounded soul,

That prowls both day and night,

But all I ask of you, darling,

Take me by the hand.

 

But you said that you wished me well,

Besides the wishing well,

The irony not lost,

As you gave me your farewell.

 

You said that you wished me well,

Into the wishing well,

The irony not lost,

As you gave me your farewell.

 

I thought we had honed our trade,

Of keeping our secrets behind the barricades,

But you found something you weren’t meant to find,

Now our deceit,

Is someone else's delight

 

Her heart oscillates,

No time to sit and wait,

Just like a ticking bomb,

I see the tension in your eyes.

 

Do we really know?

What direction life will go?

You say the things that had to change,

Weren't worth saving anyway!

 

Are you making up your mind

Are you leaving it all behind

Now you're calling it all a lie

As you open the barricades

 

(Are you making up your mind?

Are you leaving it all behind?

Now you're calling it all a lie?

As you've opened the baarricades),

Open the barricades
