lyrics

I spread my arms and closed my eyes
And wished I was a bird
So that I could fly to you and sing to you all of the words I
Didn't say I should have said when you were near
I'd sing to you the thinks
I think you'd really love to hear

My dear,

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
But all I'm wishing for is you

I'd say:
"Let's build ourselves a houseboat
to raise our future kids
We could swim at every sunrise
right after my morning-kiss
Sing our songs at our rooftop
Set sail when it's time to move on
Send our parents paper ships
Reassuring them that there's no better life than this"

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
But all I'm wishing for is you
Oh, all I'm wishing for is you ooh ooh ooh
All I'm wishing for is you

One day soon I'll pack my backpack and leave
Trough high blue skies and over deep green seas
You'd open up your arms when you'd see me come
And tell me that you waited all along

You'd say

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
And now that we're together what are we to do ooh ooh
Yeah now that we're together what are we to do ooh ooh ooh

Why don't we wish for something new
