I wish


I wish I could put out your fires
with my gentle rain.
I wish your streaks of lightening
wouldn't start those fires again.
I wish I could be young and strong enough
to come and rescue you from pain
I wish I'd done everything for you
that I didn't do.
this wish I wish
Amen.
I wish that I could dance all day
and fritter precious time away.
I'd forget to mow the grass,
be master of my domain
If only I could put your fires out
with my gentle rain.
I wish I'd done
everything for you that I didn't do
I wish this wish.
Amen.

I wish each horse I'd bet would stand to finish
win, place or show.
Anyone who's anyone I would surely know.
If I owned the world for just an hour,
I'd spin it just for you.
Only blue skies in your brown eyes,
I dream this dream comes true.


A princess and her troubadour.
A duchess with her steed.
If I could own the world just once,
I'd spin it toward your every need.
A dugout made of bone and fairy dust
where fondest dreams come true,
I wish it all for no one else-
I wish it all for you.
To glimpse the moonlight in your eyes
Sip pink champagne at sunrise-
this is my most solemn prayer.
I'm searching for you everywhere.
I wish to be young again and
make a life with you.
Lift this burden
from my stone cold heart and

make these wishes true.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
