about

This song has been several years in the making, so I'm thrilled to finally release it into the world!

When I first came up with this song, I wasn't exactly sure what the story would be - all I knew was that I wanted it to be dramatic, something you could shout while in the shower.

But then I started writing down the lyrics, and the story of this obsessed guy spilled out: someone who's been watching his crush for a long time, although she has no knowledge of him. He knows that it's wishful thinking, but part of him wants to believe that they could end up together. Does he ever succeed? Well...who knows. And if you feel bad for relating to this stalker, go easy on yourself! I just love to write songs that pull the rug out from under you.

lyrics

Lyrics:

Talking to your lover but he never comes out
Feel you've gotta cover so you're running your mouth
Say he's real sensational cuz he's from down south
Sensational how? sensational how?

Talking to your girlfriends and they wanna know why clap
Your boyfriend isn't showing up and is he alive?
You're wonderin if relationships are always online
Are they online?

I'm the god of wishful thinking
Call me crazy
Call me foolish
Call me stupid
Am I really
Half as insane
As you think that
I am, babe?

I'm alive now
That I've got you
In my grasp
You'll never be blue
Because baby
I'm in love with you and me
God of wishful thinking
God of wishful thinking.

And I'm waiting in the shadows till this is through clap
Baby don't you see that guy just isn't for you
If only you could open your eyes to the whole truth
He isn't for you, this is the truth

I've been watching you for the longest time clap
You don't know about me but you won't care when I
Sweep you off your feet and give you the life
That you always dreamed of, always dreamed of

God of wishful thinking
Call me crazy
Call me foolish
Call me stupid
Is it really
That insane
That this could turn
Into something

I'm alive now
That I've got you
In my grasp
You'll never be blue
Because baby
I'm in love with you and me

Is it crazy to assume
That you'll want me
That you'll like me
Is it crazy to assume
It's not hopeless, I can do this
I can do this

I've been watching you for hours baby
Planning all my lines
And I know
I'm the perfect guy for you

It's not just wishful thinking
I'm not crazy
I'm not foolish
I'm not stupid
I'm all you wanted and way more
I know I'll make you see
I'll make you love me, love me

God of wishful thinking, thinking

God of wishful thinking
