"A Wish for Something More" as written by and Amy Elizabeth Macdonald....
Oh the sun is shining far too bright
For it to still be night
Oh the air feels so cold, so cold and old
How can it be light?

Let's take a walk outside
See the world through teach others eyes
I wish I was your only one

I think you're beautiful but your hair is a mess
And your shoes are untied but that's what I love best

And I, I wish I was the one, your one and only sun and you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairy tale romances every single day
And you look at me and say I'm your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh I love you like a friend, but lets not pretend how I wish for something, wish for something more

Now the grass is so green, but I can't see anything past your eyes
I'm fixated on your smile

    General Commenttotally agree with the spacegod!! about falling for someone you are really close to but them not reciprocating although she possibly hasn't mentioned the fact she wants more from him?

    General CommentI agree, this is a song about being in love with someone who you know can only love you as a friend. I am living through something similar myself at the minute and the lyrics are sooo true. I particularly like the line 'this lie gets in the way every single day'- you have to play a part which is not true to your heart..
    Amy rocks!

    General CommentThis song means a hell of a lot to me. It's such a personal song, I can relate in a few ways. I think its so powerful because alot of people can experience this at some point. My best friend means the world to me and we are that close and talk about absolutly everything, shes my soul mate and if only I could meet someone that I connect with as much as that.

    I I wish for long lingering glances
    Fairy tale romances every single day

    I think this part of the song is the best, they are beautiful words and something we all wish and dream about.

    General CommentThe correct lyrics are " I wish I was the one, you lonely lonely son.." I looked it up at her official site.
    These lyrics are so obvious, they're so right, fascinatingly moving.
