Wish Gone Wrong

wish-gone-wrong

I met a man who wasn’t there

standing in the rain

whispering my name

All the nameless gathered round

as his hard won wisdom kept them spellbound

Maybe I knew whitewashed dreams

are never what they seem

Maybe I knew the night it all began

it was more than I could stand

as he sang the words of a break-up song

dissecting the anatomy of each wish gone wrong

Crowds gathered as he climbed on a chair

spewing words to describe my pain

truth and lies washing down the storm drain

and the nameless made no sound

as he followed the story of my failures like a bloodhound

Maybe I knew whitewashed dreams

are never what they seem

Maybe I knew the night it all began

it was more than I could stand

as he sang the words of a break-up song

dissecting the anatomy of each wish gone wrong

And it’s all coming full circle now

and maybe I knew all along

the man who wasn’t there is finally breathless

cuz I’m singing his song

and building new dreams

washing you away, washing you away

Maybe I knew whitewashed dreams

are never what they seem

Maybe I knew the night it all began

it was more than I could stand

and so I sang the words of a break-up song

knowing without you, I am on my way

Sun is shining and here to stay

I’m stronger every day

  1. Beautiful piece. I really like this one. Knowing it’s wrong but going for it anyways. Knowing the terrible truth of someone and finally using their hatred and lies against them to move on and grow — sing a break up song and be free. 🙂
