I wrote this song at the beginning of December and liked it at first, but then I thought nah. It’s one of those songs that you let sit for a while and then you go back two-months later and think Man I’m glad I wrote this song.
This song revolves around a girl whose unfortunately going through an abusive relationship, and she runs to a close friend every time this happens. Only she is completely unaware that her close friend has feelings for her and can no longer stand to see her go through the abuse.
Without further ado… I wish
It’s a late cold night; it’s just beginning to rain when you knock on my door.
You’ve got tears running down your cheeks and from what I can see you’ve got on at least three different kinds of makeup.
So that you can conceal what’s been left on your face by her.
(As you walk in your trembling.)
So it’s up to me to comfort you while you try to figure out what to do.
(Chorus well baby can I just say that I wish you’d stop letting yourself go through all of this pain.)
Oh and baby I know that you place the blame for all of her violence on yourself.
(Chorus Baby I wish you’d see.)
(I wish you’d see girl you are not to blame at all.)
(Chorus I wish you knew just how badly it kills me.)
(To see your pain, to see your tears.)
Oh baby I just want to take you away and invite you to stay.
Oh, cause I… I know in my heart that I could make you so happy.
(Girl I could make you so happy.)
I know that I could bring that beautiful smile back.
I could make you laugh.
(Baby don’t take her back.)
Just stay here with me and I’ll do my absolute best to make those scars that she’s left fade.
Now you’re telling me that you think that she’ll stop if you’d just make her happy.
Girl how much more do you think you can possibly take?
(Please just walk away.)
You look at me and I see a tear caught in your eye, so then I gently wipe away.
It’s then our eyes meet and we kiss.
It’s one kiss but it’s just enough.
Now it’s a few months later and we’re laughing, loving, smiling and I’m so glad that your safe here in my arms.
