I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top

  F              C           F              C
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
    F             C                   G               F
For fifty million hands upraised that open toward the sky

I wish I was a silhouette, someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on

  F              C                F            C
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
  F              C                   G             F
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one you could turn up
  F             C
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
  G              F
I guess it never stops...

this is definitely not the song and if you watch any of their concerts on dvd you will see that it's not what Eddie plays
