about

This rock ballad is oh-so-sweet and oh-so-devastating. Harkening back to younger days "when boys could fly and girls had wings", we're now at the bittersweet point in a relationshipo when you wish you could just "re-believe."

lyrics

Don’t know where I’m going, but I seem to like it
Don’t know what I’m showing you, but you seem to like it
And you were the one who said too much too soon for me, so can’t you see
That it would be so easy to indulge with you, start anew

Here we go writing our own ending
We need a dose of childhood pretending
When boys could fly and girls had wings, and we believed in anything
And everything made sense, I wonder where that went
I wish that I could re-believe

You’re the little kid who believes in ever after
But all your scripts are drama, mystery, and disaster
But I like romantic comedies, they show the possibility
That it could be a different way, you see, here with me

Here we go writing our own ending
We need a dose of childhood pretending
When boys could fly and girls had wings, and we believed in anything
And everything made sense, I wonder where that went
I wish that I could re-believe

You think that you can sweep me away
You talk about our wedding day
The fantasy sounds nice
But hey, I’ve got my life

So here’s what I propose love: we end this story
Count to 10, open up our eyes, and see that now the morning light has come

Here we go writing our own ending
We need a dose of childhood pretending
When boys could fly and girls had wings, and we believed in anything
And everything made sense, I wonder where that went
I wish that I could re-believe

I wish that I could re-believe
I wish that I could re-believe
I wish that I could re-believe
