Lyrics

"I WISH I HAD WRITTEN THAT SONG"

(c)2000 Words and Music by Laurie and Rick Williams

Oh I wish I had written that song -
it says the words right that I say all wrong
They make your heart race
and put a glow on your face

How I wish I were that other guy -
he make your heart flutter,
he makes my heart die
He laughs with a wink
and I'm watching me sink

Chorus

But the song isn't mine
and the guy isn't me
And you'll never be here where I want you to be
Still I wish I had written that song - Oh I wish I had written that song

Oh I wish I could make you want me -And know there's nowhere
that you'd rather be
Than wrapped in my arms
feelin' safe from all harm
Oh I wish I had written that song
it says the words right that I say all wrongâ_"
They make your heart race
and put a glow on your face

chorus

Bridge

But the music for us was no dance
And the truth is we never had a chance
I came in a beat too late
just bad timing or fate
Much too slow -
I should know -
not to wait
