I’d like to be able to write
But I can’t seem to find the words.
I wish I was your favorite girl.
I wish as though I was the reason
you are in the world.
Chatting on the phone,
Can’t take back those hours,
But I know now that
you can grow flowers,
from where dirt used to be.
I wish my smile was your favorite kind of smile
I wish that the way I dressed was your favorite kind of style.
You gave me those pearls and I thought they were ugly.
Don’t you try and tell me that you never loved me.
I wish you couldn’t figure me out,
But you’d always wanna know what I was about.
I wish you’d hold my hand when I was upset,
I wish you’d never forget the look on my face when we first met.
I wish that without me your heart would break.
I wish that without me you’d be spending the rest of your nights awake.
I wish that without me you couldn’t eat.
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep.
Look, all I know is that you’re the nicest thing I’ve ever seen.
I wish we could see if we could be something.
