​I Wish

This song is by Heather Headley and appears on the album Audience Of One (2009).

I'd give you the moon, but you'd never know the warmth of the sunshine
I'd give you the world, but exactly what would that do
I'd promised you wings to fly, but how would you ever learn to run
So I wish you all you need to be more than I could be
This is what I wish for you

I wish you rainy days, so you can know the beauty of a clear blue sky
I wish you falling leaves, so you'll understand that seasons change
And if I gave you the mountains, would you learn to climb
I pray you'll always see the forest through the trees

And this is what I wish for you
And this is what I wish for you

If I could I'd change the world and chase your fears away
And I'd stay right by your side and show the way that you should take
But this your life, this is your story, and when all is done and said
May you live with no regrets

I wish you ocean breeze, and rivers that can bring you everything you dream
I wish that the ache you breathe, is all that you'll ever need
And I wish you nights of love, and days of joy and shoulders when you cry
And just enough hellos, to get you through goodbye
And this is what I wish for you

I pray one day you'll have a home, with arms that open wide
And you'll have someone who loves you, always by your side
And if you lose your will to try, I wish you wings to fly
I wish you wings to fly

I wish you everything you need

And this is what I wish for you
And this is what I wish for you
