The King Of Wishful Thinking by Go West

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 (1)____________ to the talk of the town
Then maybe I can (2)________ 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 (3)________ of wishful thinking

I refuse to give in to my blues
That's not how it's going to be

And I deny the tears in my eyes
I don't want to let you see...
No...
That you have made a (4)________ in my heart
And now I've got to (5)________ myself...
I'll get (6)________ 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...
Yeah

I will never, never shed a tear for you
I'll get over you
I know I will

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'm the king of wishful thinking
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 get over you
I (7)________ I will
I'll pretend my heart's (8)__________ beating
'Cause I've got no more tears for you
I'm the king of wishful thinking...
I'll get over you
I know I will
You made a hole in my heart
And I'll tell myself I'm (9)________ you...
