"Wishing Weed" as written by Jason Reeves and Makana Rowan....
Mmmmm....mmmmm

I picked a wishing weed beneath your mothers tree
and I asked it to bring you back to me
then a dragonfly took it to the sky
and it rode on the wind until it caught your eye

I'm never gonna get over you
not cause I can't cause I don't want to
mmm...I'm gonna get you back if it's the only thing I do
I'm never gonna get over you

Took the secret path to where I saw you last
and a sparrow dropped a letter to me as it passed
it was a simple sketch of a heart in red
and it broke me when I opened it 'cause all it said was..

I'm never gonna get over you
not cause I can't cause I don't want to
you know it's true...
that I'm gonna get you back if it's the only thing I do
I'm never gonna get over..

of all the love that's found and lost and never seen again..
you're the only one that's worth repeating through my head

I'm never gonna get over you
mmm...not cause I can't cause I don't want to
you know it's true...
that I'm gonna get you back if it's the only thing I do
I'm never gonna get over you

    General Commenti think its "of all the lover's found and lost and never seen again..."
    not sure though
    such a beautiful song

    i think it's pretty easy to understand.

    a person he absolutely adores and doesn't want to stop loving, even though there not together anymore

    My InterpretationI can never express enough how much I absolutely love Jason Reeves. His music is beautiful. This song is pretty much self explanitory though. It isn't much more difficult than that he is thinking about a former love and wishing he were with her again and he has decided that he will get her back no matter what it takes, if its the only thing he does because he wont ever get over her. I am thinking that the second verse is supposed to be a sign that she wants him back too because its a letter saying that shes never going to get over him. I THINK thats what it means but I am not sure. A slight correction in Lyrics though because it is "of all the lovers found and lost and never seen again.. you're the only one that runs repeating through my head". Other than that, this song is definitely one of my major favorites and I love Jason Reeves... as I said before.
