Track Name: I Wish
I wish I could write you a love letter
I wish I could speak my mind
But every time I try words seem to fail
They seem to fall between the lines

And every dusty memory that sticks between my teeth
Reminds me of the lips I’d kiss; the lips I long to keep

I wish I could hear you say
All the things that I dream you’d think
If only I’d the courage to admit to
All the wishes I have made

And every moment of discovery that falls between our feet
Reminds me of the breath I hold whenever our eyes meet

I wish that you could hear me
Singing songs I cannot say
I’d offer every word to you
If they weren’t standing in my way
If only I could look to you and
Open up and say...

I wish I could keep you near
I wish I could touch your cheek
I wish I could hold you close
I wish you were mine alone
