My feelings are strong,
And I don’t think they’re wrong—
You’re on my mind all the time.
I wish we were older;
I wish we were bolder—
I wish you were already mine.
I wish I didn’t have to be alone;
I wish I could stay and not go home—
I wish we could find a way.
I wish we could be together
Every day and in every weather—
I wish we could start today.
