Song Description

A lilting ballad of loss an regret

Story Behind the Song

I was stopped in traffic behind an accident in a rain storm. Horns blaring, thunder clapping, rain pouring and looked to my right and there sat a willow tree as peaceful as could be. The first few lines came to me instantly.

Lyrics

I wish I was a willow tree
By the water's edge
Never wanting anything
Just the sun and rain
If you were laying by my side
Watching the clouds roll by
I'd do my weeping to the wind
Instead of wishing you were back again

Chorus)
I wish I was the road
I'd turn around and bring you home.
I wish I was the place
that you're going to
I wish I'd never told you
I wish I had some time alone
'cus sometimes the wrong ones come true

I wish I was a midnight train
I'd let my lonesome whistle blow
Destination who knows where
I wouldn't care
I wouldn't feel lost like this
Everywhere would be home I guess
I'd be singing in the rails you see
Instead of wishing you were here with me

Chorus)
I wish I was the road
I'd turn around and bring you home.
I wish I was the place
that you're going to
I wish I'd never told you
I wish I had some time alone
"cus sometimes the wrong ones come true

Solo...interlude

Chorus)
I wish I was the road
I'd turn around and bring you home.
I wish I was the place
that you're going to
I wish I'd never told you
I wish I had some time alone
'cus sometimes the wrong ones come true
Yeah sometimes, the wrong ones come true

I wish I was a willow tree
I wish I was a midnight train
