"Jayne's Blue Wish" as written by and Kathleen Brennan Tom Waits....
The sky holds all our wishes
The dish ran away with the spoon
Chimney smoke ties the roofs to the sky
There's a hole overhead
It's only the moon

Will there ever be a tree
Grown from the seeds I've sown
Life is a path lit only by the light of those I've loved
By the light of those I love

Life's a path lit only by the light of those I've loved
By the light of those I love

    General Comment"Will there ever be a tree grown from the seeds of soul?
    Life is a path led only by the light of those I've loved"

    The correct lyrics are:

    Will there ever be a tree grown from the seeds I've sown?
    Life is a path lit only by the light of those I've loved.

    I have to give a speech in a few weeks on my community volunteerism, and those two lines are the foundation of my entire speech. TW is relating the tree to our legacy. We all wish to leave a legacy for when we are gone, and he is hoping the legacy he leaves is one that is large.

    And our life is a path, and when we are around those we love, the path is easier.
