"Wishing That" as written by and Jann Arden Richards....
When I held you, you would almost always hold me down
You could see through everything
I said I was falling and you said not to fall on you
I've bitten every finger 'til it bleed

Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that

When I kissed you, you would almost always kiss me back
But I could tell your mind was with someone else
Oh my hands are folded neatly on my lap
And I am picturing your body as I ask myself

If you loved me to
Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that

Listen to my nervous laughter
Sunken deep inside my heart
My lips are dry, I'm teary eyed for you my love
Harken all you fallen angels, help me find a place to rest
My head is pounding here beneath the weight of this
I'm wishing that
And you know me, oh you know me more than anyone

When I hear your voice everything I've done disappears from memory
Oh my darling come and save me,
Tell me I'm the one your dreaming of
Tell me that you love me to

Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that you loved me to
Wishing that, I'm wishing that, wishing that, wishing that
You loved me to

    General CommentThis song is an example of why I like Jann's writing.

    It's about being in a relationship with someone and knowing that they don't love you the way you love them. They don't even have to say they don't. And yet your stupid heart hangs on, wishing and hoping.
