Lyricist:    Composer:


Why can't we speak another language, one we all agree on?
Why and when men look outside, do they see houses,
Instead of the fields they grew from?
We are constantly uprooted from them, making us tiresome and fearful,
Can you get up right now? Endeavour to free-fall

'Cause you can fall if you want to, it's just a matter of how far,
You've treasured your home town, but you've forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you until you're mind's been found,
And it has been found wondering around

With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn't give up hope
It's the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed

Patterns all arranged in my background,
It's pillars and posts keeping this country on form
Letters were all sent with no addresses so that people can't discover
We're always undercover
Why do I always draw triangles instead of words this paper so deserves?

'Cause you see,
I don't own my clothes but I own my mind,
And it's not what you've lost,
But it's what you find

We found that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn't give up hope
It's the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed

'Cause you can fall if you want to, it's just a matter of how far,
You've treasured your home town, but you've forgotten where you are
And it will stay with you 'til you're mind's been found,
and it has been found wondering around

With that skipping rope, the trampoline,
The crafty smoke that made us choke,
But we didn't give up hope
It's the simple ways of getting paid,
The carelessness of running away,
Now, I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed,
I wish I stayed

Wish I Stayed
