    "Wish I May" Lyrics

    Ani DiFranco

    i am losing my love for adventure
    i'm losing all respect
    for me and myself tonight
    i wonder what happens if i get to
    the end of this tunnel
    and there isn't a light
    i've worn down the treads
    on all of my tires
    i've worn through the elbows
    and the knees of my clothing
    i am stumbling down
    the gravel driveway of desire

    trying not to wake up
    my sleeping self-loathing

    do you ever have that dream
    where you open your mouth
    and you try to scream
    but you can't make a sound
    that's every day starting now
    that's every day starting now

    don't tell me it's gonna be alright
    you can't sell me on your optimism tonight

    it's stiff competition
    to see who can stay up later
    the stars or the street lights
    all they really want
    is to be alone with the darkness

    no more wish i may
    no more wish i might

    it takes a stiff upper lip
    just to hold up my face
    i got to suck it up and savor
    the taste of my own behavior
    i am spinning with longing
    faster than a roulette wheel
    this is not who i meant to be
    this is not how i meant to feel

    i don't think i am strong enough
    to do this much longer
    god i wish i was stronger
    this song could never be long enough
    to express every longing
    god i wish it was longer
