I Wish I May

words & music by Chris LaVancher © 2012

I wish I may, I wish I might
Spend some time with you tonight
I’m tired of this road I’m missing home.
I think about you every day
But when I got to San Jose,
I had to stop and drink myself to bed.
It’s the only way to chase you from my head.

I’m sorry that I had to leave
But I can’t help thinking you’re relieved
I’ve made a mess of everything I’ve touched.
Sent you money when I could
A post card from Hollywood
“Wishing you were here” I know it’s trite
But that’s all I had the heart to write.

(bridge)
I’ve got an ache inside that I can’t shake
Leaving you was my mistake
I realize it now it’s much too late
I’m on the road, I’m running blind
Thought I’d find some peace of mind
But all I see are images of you.
I take a drink ‘cause that’s all I can do.

I wish I may, I wish I might
Lie down next to you tonight
I’d take everything back if I could
But I know down deep inside you never would.
