Does someone know the name or artist of this song? (lyrics inside)

So I was shopping at costco recently and was listening to their Able Planet Sound Clarity Active Noise Canceling Headphones, which were on display and able to be tested out. Anyhow they had a preset of 5 or so songs to sample the headphones and one of them caught my attention, but after googling the lyrics I have yet to find the title of the song or artist, so if someone could help me out I'd really appreciate it.
I dont think this a "mainstream" pop song as I've never heard it on the radio, the singer has a rocker type of voice but the in general had a low key almost reggae vibe, similar to the band 311.

Anyhow here are the lyrics that I was able to listen to, not sure if it started at the beginning of the song or not since they fade in and out on rotation.



Waiting on one wish... Waiting on one wish...

And so I sip, and make a wish, that this song will be sung for years,
So let it rid my mind of the time that grinds as we make our way down the road...

Never losing faith in what I have cause in the end it's all I've got,
I'm never going to stress myself out,
Living in that world of self doubt,

I know where to go... (but people are bringing me down)
Somewhere to go.... (get myself off the ground)

Off the ground, and never come down,
Got to keep on dreaming...

Sorry, hit post before adding lyrics:

Waiting on one wish
I need a dime spare a dime
For a man who still believes
In all the dreams and everything
That he was told he could be
Sometimes people feed you things
But they’re just filled with fear
Why do you want to go stress yourself out
Living in that world of self-doubt
I know where to go when people are bringing me down
Somewhere to go to pick myself up off the ground
Waiting by this wishing well
I’m still dreaming
Presidents can cast a spell
Waiting on one waiting on one
Won’t somebody wish me well
My dimes not sinking
Standing by this wishing well waiting on one wish
Waiting on one wish
And so I sit and make a wish
That this song will be sung for years
To let it rid my mind of the time that grinds as we make our way down this road
Never losing faith in what I have
In the end it’s all I’ve got
Never going to stress myself out living in that world of self-doubt
I know where to go when people are bringing me down
Somewhere to go to pick myself up off the ground
And never come down got to keep on dreaming
Waiting by this wishing well
I’m still dreaming
Presidents can cast a spell
Waiting on one
Won’t somebody wish me well
My dimes not sinking
Standing by this wishing well
Waiting on one wish
