"The Wish" as written by and Cyril John/greenall Curnin....
He told me I remind him of you
You’re a spirit on the wind
He could never pin you down
Yet you're his dearest friend

I imagine that your lips are sweet to kiss
I imagine your hair falling
On his shoulders as you lay him down
I imagine you're a presence a man like him would miss
I wish that I were you

He told me I remind him of when
His heart but all stood still
Time and time again
A first love sometimes will

I imagine that your lips are soft to kiss
I imagine your hair falling
On his shoulders as you lay him down
I imagine you're a presence a man like him would miss
I wish that I were you

I imagine that his lips are sweet to kiss
I imagine my hair falling on his shoulders as I lay him down
I imagine all the heartache I probably will miss
I wish that I were you

    General CommentThis is one of my all time favorite songs.

    I could never find the lyrics so I finally just decided to decipher the lyrics myself. Please let me know of any corrections/suggestions.

    To me this song is about the woman who comes along after a great love. Often movies/books center on first loves but this is about the women falling for a man who's idealized his first love and can't move on.
