Bearded Ballads 2/30: Wishful Thinking

 Wishful Thinking

Saturday he took his life
pray tell me where did he take it?
Straight to the Potter’s Field
was as far as he made it

wish the songs
hadn’t all been sung
or better yet
find some way to right my wrongs

cause the road is long
and it’s twisty back and forth
I’ll sing this song
your life’s much more than you think it’s worth
can’t wish you back, can’t wish you back

He went out afield a-hunting
not knowing what he was searching for
could’ve all been wrapped up in bunting
but woahoh he wanted more

finally finding out
what it’s all about
and I know
I don’t want no more

the road is long
and it’s twisty back and forth
I’ll sing this song
your life’s much more than you think it’s worth
can’t wish you back, can’t wish you back
