i wish

words and music by

john greene

 

 

i wish you could have been my friend

and i could have been yours,

we could have taught each other so much,

i wish we could have had the things

that people like us should

but our souls just never seemed to touch

 

but now the sand has all run out

and there's nothing i can do

i guess i never could talk to you,

this song is gonna be my only chance

to say goodbye

and tell you that i'll miss you so much

 

 

i wish i could've been the one

you showered your love upon

i wish that you could have been prouder of me,

but i had a different road

i had to travel on

and it took me places where you couldn't be

 

and now the sand has all run out

there's nothing i can do

i guess i never could talk to you,

this song is gonna be my only chance

to say goodbye

and tell you that i'll miss you so much
