I'm gonna check my scars at home
Gonna cash my chips and roam
Gonna walk before you fade to black

I'm gonna write a new resume
I'm gonna write you off the page
I'm gonna take what we might take away

And you will find a brighter
You might find a brighter day
Oh

And in another year
The pain will disappear and I
Will look back on this life as if it were a scene
In a film somebody made for you and me
I wish you well

Oh I wish you well
Na na na na na na na
I wish you well

She wants to be set free
Wants the space to feel love and be angry and I 
I watch her bounce off the walls
While the chips they start to fall

And then in a little while I see
That distant smile returning
Just like a ghost in a dream
That we had way back when
And then she'll turn and smile and say
Come again

Oh
And in another year
The pain will disappear
We'll look back on this life as if it were a scene
Somebody wrote about you and me
Somebody wrote about you and me
I wish you well

I cannot believe
There's nothing left to save
Hard as a hammer she wants me
To come again and again (And in another year)

I'm down on my knees (The pain will disappear)
Won't you come again
Don't you need relief
Don't you need relief

And in another year
The pain will disappear and I 
Will look back on this life
As if it were a scene

And in a little while I see 
That distant smile returning
Just like back in the days
When we were so naive
In a film somebody, somebody made
I wish you well

I wish you well
Oh
I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
Na na na na na na
I wish you well
