I Wish Before

I wish a million things,
and none of them forever.
I wish a hundred pieces
all of them brought together

I need this like tomorrow
so nothing is for sure
I'll beg it from the past
It all remains impure

Don't listen as I say this
I've told you all this finally
Perhaps we will reach silence
Release this now entirely

I wish a million distances.
I'll try to hold them close like this
I'll tell you what I want from you
You'll tell me it's all true

And then you'll let me go
