Adrienne Borges - I Wish



He said he's going away

He doesn't know for how long

But it's gonna be okay


Time was standing still for her

She put up ribbons on the front porch

Alone, at night, with the lights

In the trees, glowing

But she was only missing him

She sings


Chorus:

Oh, I wish

For you to be home in time

Mistletoe,

I can't fall asleep tonight

Play your cards right

And by midnight I might

Find you underneath my tree

Just for me


She said Jesus I haven't done any wrong

I haven't asked for much

Until I realized I can't have what I want


I know that he is strong

I just don't think that he should be gone

For so long


Chorus:

Oh, I wish

For you to be home in time

Mistletoe,

I can't fall asleep tonight

Play your cards right

And by midnight I might

Find you underneath my tree

Just for me


The clock struck twelve

He stepped off the plane

Uniform in hand

He got in a taxi

Said Sir take me home

I've done the best I can

But I've got a sweetheart

And I need her in my arms tonight


The doorbell rang

The lights were spinning fast

They found a young man

But they're not quite sure

How the car had crashed


I know it's Christmas night

I know it's late at night

It's too late, to save him tonight


She cried


Chorus:

All I wished

Was you to be home in time

Mistletoe,

I won't fall asleep tonight

Play my cards right

And by twilight I might

Wake up from this dream

To you and me


He said he's going away

He doesn't know for how long

But it's gonna be okay
