YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND
It feels so impossible to make you mine
Yet I give it all my time
Wish you would be near me
And see the world like I see.
Smile with me like I do
The night is still cold and blue
A warm hug to comfort me
And a tear to fill the sea
Every second, every sight,
I feel you’re my Mr. Right
But it’s hard to take in
That you would never be mine.
Every time I see you smile
I feel like I travelled a thousand mile
To reach the moon and the stars
And dived in the ocean blue
To reach for something I never knew
Perhaps it could be a pearl
Hidden inside the shell
Or a ruby that could cast a spell
But it seems impossible too
As I always think about you
My heart still beats to the rhythm of your breath
And my love never has its death
When will you realize
That this beautiful feeling can hypnotize
Me in such a way
That I mistake night for the day?
You are all that I want and all that I feel
And here’s my little appeal
“Will you be mine?
And make me shine?
And make me hopeful that everything is fine?
I want to make you feel good
And be the best I could
And hold your warm hand
And make all your wishes my command.”
