If I had one wish it would be you staring with your sultry eyes From across the room where I'll be waiting poised and steady Yet I'm a nervous wreck, cause this means more than all the rest Because if this wish came true, I doubt I'd be composed And you came to me, and whispered softly "Things will be ok" And as I held you close everything but you vanished right away I startled out of sleep, and tried my best not to believe that this was just a dream that I composed on my last night in San Francisco You were on my mind, and I couldn't help to shake that feeling With your lips so soft pressing against mine, swelling up my breathing To a rapid state, pushing my lungs to keep up with its pace so these troubles wouldn't distract from the thoughts of you The girl who could make all my wishes true Never a time when your kiss would taste so sweet Currently in a lie where my mind deceives Wake up, think fast, breath slow, settle down, settle down, settle down You're not around So far across the states from where I am now, safe and sound, lying in your own bed at this hour dreaming of a wish to call your own You're a pretty girl with a wit that cuts through conversations Leave a trace of you where you go left for observation There's a lucky one who you'll love and with them be forever true If I had one wish it would be you

We wander now hopeless, The kiss we shared is now a memory I made mistakes and wear them like tattered clothes for my weddings first dance So if I'm dreaming, wake me up to face the dawn and process the past night without the fog of alcohol In which I learned the fire deep in your heart thrives on something more than this I just hope I'm what you need The silence created makes it just that much harder to think I lie awake at night reliving every word between every drink Anticipation transcends sleep of dreaming to see you again And pray that things between us stay the same. We have regrets, we show them with our actions that differed from before And they speak more than we have in the last week, oh how I miss those conversations I'm just trying to understand The miscommunication got lost between both of our lips Romances form from an alcohol induced friendly kiss Some loves will last forever and be glad about their mistakes While others tend to walk away ashamed. I wander now hopelessly holding on to a spark I thought that burned deep in your heart yet still I can't help but think We could've been the lucky ones.

I know you wanted it Said you needed it But your patience stares you blankly in the face as you speak And all this talking stops once I flick the light switch off I saw you clutch your hands real tight I kissed your forehead, said goodnight I know tomorrow you'll catch the first train out of town We lied in silence With no resolve to this You fell asleep despondent So I doubt you'll wake me before you leave To at least say goodbye before you head out of town Upon waking up the first thing I'll notice is The morning greeting me as sunshine fills this empty room Staring at a letter on the pillow that was left by you And it read: "You know I wanted it I said I needed it But I can't wait much longer, time is passing by, you see. You kept saying that you would I know your intentions are good With no progress I can see, you're just not the one for me So I'm sorry I must move on with my life It was nice knowing you, so take care. Goodbye!" I'm burning daylight, I just can't seem to leave this room I'm burning holes inside my pockets because you left too soon I had your ring Now you're gone

There are little moments you caught my eye, it's when you'd say something endearing and then before you walk away, you'd shoot a smile It made me think that your heart was exposed to the ideas of us, i supposed all those moments started to compile So I told you "I love you" but you took your time to formulate a response much different than mine If only I believed those words were true I could be free Congenial meetings have been fading into close to nothing, I'm waiting while our conversations slowly unwind Then there came the day with wistful reproach as if knowing my heart would just close with the notion you've kept fresh on your mind You told me you were leaving I pleaded please stay that hid behind my lips as you walked away If only i believed those words would make something change We could be free from all the hidden games we play Ignoring the fact that honesty could kill the flames Instead the beauty of your eyes don't match words that you say Face value has a way of hiding things that you believe But lies conceal your wants and not your needs You could be free
