"Wishing Well" as written by John Douglas Bundrick, Simon Frederick St. George Kirke, Paul Francis Kossoff, Paul Bernard Rodgers and Tetsu Yamauchi....
Take off your hat, kick off your shoes.
You know you ain't goin' anywhere.
Spend all your time singin' your blues.
You know you ain't goin' anywhere.
You've always been a good friend of mine,
But you always say farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
Is with your feet in the wishing well.
In the wishing well.

Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself.
Or is that what you're tryin' to do?
Put up a fight you believe to be right,
And one day the sun will shine through.
You've always got somethin' to hide.
Somethin' you just can't tell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
Is with your feet in the wishing well.
In the wishing well.

But I know what you're wishing for.
Love in a peaceful world.
Love in a peaceful world.
Love in a peaceful world.
Hm, hm-m-m-m.

You've always been a good friend of mine,
But you always say farewell.
And the only time that you're satisfied,
Is with your feet in the wishing well.
In the wishing well.
In the wishing well.
Everybody's got a dream
And they take it to the wishing well.
Everybody's got a dream,
Wishing well.

    General CommentFree have also done a pretty good version too.

    I think it's about someone always talking about committing suicide.

    "Spending your time, singing your blues.
    I know you ain't going anywhere."
    and
    "Throw down your gun, you might shoot yourself.
    Or is that what you're trying to do?"

    I don't know, it just seems like it's someone who always talks about killing themselves but they won't really, it's just for attention.
