Verse 1

And if I can't change your mind,

I hope you walk on and find

A girl who can hold your gaze

And speak words that can amaze

The harshest and hardest of souls-

Even if I can never play that role.

Chorus

I wish I could hate you,

I wish I could wish you hurt just like you're hurting me.

But I can't, I just can't,

It's not your fault you're not in love with me, and I can see

I'm stuck loving you for a long time now.

Verse 2

I want you to find happiness,

I want you to find a gentle face

That can bring a smile to your lips,

And I hope your heart never weeps,

The way mine does every day,

I hope you never hurt that way.

Chorus

I wish I could hate you,

I wish I could wish you hurt just like you're hurting me.

But I can't, I just can't,

It's not your fault you're not in love with me, and I can see

I'm stuck loving you for a long time now.

Bridge

I hope you smile and shine,

And even if you're never mine,

My best wishes are with you.

I hope your dreams come true.

Chorus

I wish I could hate you,

I wish I could wish you hurt just like you're hurting me.

But I can't, I just can't,

It's not your fault you're not in love with me, and I can see

I'm stuck loving you for a long time now.
