Wish For

words/music © matt ralph 2001

I’m inside,

Looking out the window,

At the spring rain,

Dancing off the roof,

Everything’s quiet,

Everything’s O.K.

And then Something,

Something to wish for,

Like a rainbow,

Something to wish for,

Like the sun,

Like the woman,

Like it’s just begun,

How we used to drink our echoes,

Spinach salad at The Moon,

And I tell you that I love you,

And we walk into the other room,

That’s all that I wish for,

That’s all that I want,

Caught between the wishing for,

And the what I’ve got,

Maybe I could cut my hair,

Pack my things and head somewhere,

Leave my keys with a friend next door,

Leave a message hanging off my door,

Gone to find my woman,

Be with her again,

I don’t know where I’ll find her,

But I hear her call my name,

And then it’ll be alright,

We’ll be running in the middle of the night,

We’ll be howling to the devils in the rain,

I’ll be kissing your lips again,

And we’ll both be dancing,

Words will fall away,

Just a look between us,

Just a glance some day,

That’s all I wish for like a rainbow,

That’s all I wish for like the sun,

Like the woman,

Like it’s just begun
