The Wish

Can I ask you now
What’s left on your list
i’ll try to do what I can
You just have to make the wish

I can give you all the things
That you’ve ever desired
All you’ve gotta go do is name them
And they’ll be acquired

If you wanted all the riches
I can give you plenty of gold
Or if you wanted endless beauty
I’d make sure you never grow old

But don’t forget to remember
Wishes don’t always work out
Cause sometimes we find that
There’s so much we can do without

Sometimes the mightiest wishes
Can stop ourselves from learning
About who we are and what we can do
And what exactly we are yearning

So I’ll ask you once again
What’s last on your list
I’ll try to do what I can
You just have to make the wish

Now here you are standing
Just the same as you were
As if the wish never passed
Like an unanswered prayer

I’m sorry this happened
I’m not sure what went wrong
Or maybe this is exactly
What you wanted all along

So I’ll ask you one last time
Did you get everything you wanted
And I’ll be so ecstatic to hear you say
No just everything I needed
