What was I supposed to do?
I turned around with the world and she simply was there
My blood ran like ice right through
She had your face and your lips
And your eyes and your hair

You're the wish you are I had
You're the wish you are I had
You're the wish that I had

I wonder if she knows that when I made her up
I made her eat an apple
And I made her drink a cup or two

Wish wish wish wish wish
Wish wish wish wish wish for you

Who'd believe me if I said
I brought an angel to earth by the power of mind
Think I'm going off my head
She caught the same bus as me and she sat down behind

You're the wish you are I had
You're the wish you are I had
You're the wish that I had

Little did I know that on a rainy day
All the little wishes I had put away
Would bring you

Wish wish wish wish wish
Wish wish wish wish wish for you

Well if wishing is bad bad bad
Then send me to hell hell hell
But If you take my wish away
Then this cold world would burn as well

You're the wish you are I had
