This song was really on our hearts to rewrite because the original lyrics had a great message about wanting a second chance in life. There are times in life where we wish we could go back in time to redo some of our mistakes. But God shows us that when we have a relationship with Him, He truly gives us a second chance in life as we look forward to living a much more meaningful life with Jesus as our focus.

We performed this song as part of our church's Worship Night. Much thanks to B.O.B. and Haley Williams for providing the original version of this song. Thanks also goes to everyone at Harvest Holy Ground Church Oakland for making this moment possible.

And most importantly, all the credit ultimately goes to God for blessing us with the gift of worship and the opportunity to share this song with everyone who made it to our Worship Night Celebration.

Note: The song starts at 3:08, but please watch the video to understand why we chose to parody this song.

Lyrics

Chorus

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

1st verse

God is not a dream, or a genie or a wish
His holiness and glory are more powerful than this
Our world is in a crisis 'cause our morals are collapsing
We're not investing in what's truly everlasting

I see the news and all the stories filled with sadness
With wars, disease and hunger, people filled with madness
So while I'm praying with my hands on my lap
And I'm crying out for Jesus Christ to please come back

Because this world is broken and cold
I need the Holy Spirit to convict and take hold
Of all my heart, mind, and soul take a stance
To defend what is right I only got one chance

So Yaweh, Yaweh, don't want to be late
For Your revival, it will be so great
I'll run my race and I'll fight the good fight
"Cause I know You have my back from the morning "til night

Chorus

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

2nd Verse

God come and take me back to the days
Before You changed my heart and mind, before I got saved
It didn't really matter if I took the time to pray
And back when I never went to church in Sundays

You didn't give Your life for the heck of it
You did it so our lives could now be relevant
I'm hopeful that if we could praise and glorify His name
Throughout the world that nothing in this place would be the same

So Jesus took our sins on the cross in pain
And 'cause He loved us all Jesus died in shame
So that our very lives would never be in vain
It's more than seeking money, all the pleasure and the fame

We need more than a wish to end the politics
And chaos in the world that is full on conflicts
We come to You with broken hearts and we say
We know that Jesus Christ will always be the Way

Chorus

Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now, wish right now, wish right now

I could use more than a wish right now x 2
Like shooting stars
I could use more than a wish right now
A wish, a wish right now
