I don't need to fall at your feet
Just 'cause you cut me to the bone
And I won't miss the way that you kiss me
We were never carved in stone

If I don't listen to the talk of the town
Then maybe I can fool myself

I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
(I am the king of wishful thinking)
I am the king of wishful thinking

I refuse to give in to my blues
That's not how it's gonna be
And I deny the tears in my eyes
I don't want to let you see, no

That you have made a hole in my heart
And now I've got to fool myself

I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking

I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
(King of wishful)

Break it down

If I don't listen to the talk of the town
Then maybe I can fool myself

I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my ship's not sinking
And I'll tell myself I'm over you
'Cause I'm the king of wishful thinking
(King of wishful)
I am the king of wishful thinking
(King of wishful)

I'll get over you, I know I will
You made a hole in my heart
But I won't shed a tear for you
I'll be the king of wishful thinking
(I'll be the king of wishful thinking)

I'll get over you, I know I will
I'll pretend my heart's still beating
'Cause I've got no more tears for you
I'm the king of wishful thinking
(King of wishful thinking)
