This where we met
This is where it all began
I was trying to forget as I ran
I saw you on the bench
That light in your hair
I sat down beside you
The heart of my despair

Now I’m wishing you were here
Then I’m wishing I was gone
To make the sadness disappear
And move this carnival along
Ah but wishing on a star
Is more than giving it a name
I was hoping for a dream
A dream that never came

And then we had a life
We settled in our ways
An ordinary life
Filled with ordinary days
We were calm as the seasons
In everything we’d do
I didn’t see this coming
Did you?

I keep wishing you were here
Then I’m wishing I was gone
To make this sadness disappear
As the carnival goes on
Ah but wishing on a star
Is more than giving it a name
I was hoping for a dream
A dream that never came

His eyes stung
His throat ached
He could barely swallow
Something had happened
A memory
Briefly recognized
And then moved beyond
He stood like dawn
On the edge of something
Reaching
Searching for a word
He pursed his lips
Nothing

Now the kids are at the heart
Kids are at the edges too
Kids are at the centre
Of everything that we do

Maybe they’re the cause
But they’re the solution to this
Hell, they are what we prayed for
They’re everything that I miss

And I’m wishing they were here
Then I’m wishing they were gone
To make the sadness disappear
Move this carnival along
Ah but wishing on a star
Is more than giving it a name
I was hoping for a dream
The dream’s always the same
On this Park Bench
This Park Bench
