Wishing and wishing and wishing I pray
wishing you’d come and wishing you’d stay—
wishing you’d be here in a blink of an eye
wishing we’d laugh away all of our cries.

Wishing and wishing and wishing one day
wishing we’ll play in the blue ocean spray
wishing the winter would turn to spring
wishing to love you to dance and to sing.

Wishing and wishes washing away
and slowly I drift with nothing to say
just fancy and whim loll in my head
as I turn and twist alone in my bed.
