Will Hoge – Wish lyrics

I remember as the seasons turned to fall
Wind was sitting and the leaves fell a hinting a sign of the near winter's ball
Chill in the air as I strolled down the back steps looking for a tale to tell
Then she slipped me a stare as I slid into my chair she already knew me too well

She said hello in that beautiful voice my reply was nowhere as sweet
She seemed impressed by the state of my mess
She laughed at the wings on my feet
Offered me a cigarette and before I could even refuse
We were standing alone she was chilled to the bone she told me to sing the blues

[Chorus:] hey hey now I feel alright and I just wanted to see
If I may if I might be the king of your world tonight

So I told her of the books I'd read and details about the time
I stole six dollars from a man named Jed just to turn around and pay him back nine
I quoted my favorite poem but I ended it terribly wrong
She said I understand then she clapped both her hands and said that's my favorite song


Just then a man walked in and took her away she said her sweet goodbye
I'll see you again one day so it was over and I was standing there all alone
And I said to myself as I dusted my shelf this time I think it was love
