I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off your Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish...

Only if they never play a single track more from U2, Travis, Coldplay or Elbow. Deal?

 
Sounds like RP isn't for you. You should ask for your money back.

And Radiohead. And Arcade Fire. And Decembrists. Now, if you're a fan of any of those, would you still want the deal? 

Nyah nyah ain't gonna happen, so I'll take PJ.  Anyway, great band, and whether me or you, more or less PJ comes sooner or later with the downer sauce of RH and AF.

Please, please, please, if you can't stop, at least cut down on the PJ?

I thought this was a Strawbs / Dire Straits collaboration for a minute.  Silly me.

I wish Bill played more PJ.  Both Jam and Harvey.  {#Bananapiano}

Gabba gabba. One of us.
3rd Eddie & Pearl Jam tune in 4.5 hours, one a day is more than enough. {#Stupid}

If I were you I would told him the truth.

My high school professor taught me this 35 yrs ago. 
Oh sweet bird of youth.
 
Wishing is a natural spring
