Lyrics

Wishin’ Anyway

I drove by your old house today
Felt like I was stalkin’ the place
The trees were bigger, but the porch was the same
where we used to play
And I remembered that crazy thrill
Younger days, with more time to kill
Then for a moment my heart stood still
I could see you wavin' goodbye

Don't go so far away
Why can't we all just stay right here, where we belong?
I know, it might be too much to pray
to be together in the same place
but there ain't no harm in wishin', anyway

I found a picture just the other day
Heads thrown back, yeah, we were laughin' away
The shock of life and love across your face
was hard for me to take
It was just a flash on that September morn
Here today, the next day we're gone
Time is mean for just rollin' on
leaving everything behind...

I know that every minute is a gift
you gotta take it, 'cause you can't go back
But if I lived every day like it was my last
I'd just be cryin' all the time, singin'

Don't go so far away
Why can't we all just stay right here, where we belong?
I know, it might be too much to pray
to be together in the same damn place
But there ain't no harm in wishin', anyway
