Song Description

This song asks the age old question, "Don't you wish there was something better?" It is a quite, thoughtful song. Larry & Phil set up a beautiful Simon & Garfunkel type harmony that captures the mood perfectly.

Story Behind the Song

This is the lead off song on the album "East Farewell" and sort of sets the listener up for the other tunes on the album. It was meant to try to transport you over to East Farewell.

Lyrics

Don?t You Wish
©J.D. Carroll Creative Ventures Music

Don?t You Wish you had a place to live in,
a time that you could belive in.
Don?t You Wish you had a place where you were understood,
do the best that you could.
Don?t You Wish there was someone you knew.
Someone to make you happy when you were blue.
Don?t You Wish you had someone to make it all worth your while.
Someone to share your smiles.

Or, do you ever feel you?re standing at the station
waiting for the train to come.
Do you ever wonder why there?s so much complication.
Why can?t life be simple and fun?
Simple and fun.

Don?t You Wish you had a life to live in,
a world and a time that you could believe in.
Don?t You Wish you had a place where the answers all were good,
or atleast the questions were understood.
Don?t You Wish there was someone to show you.
Someone who understood and really got to know you.
Don?t You Wish you had someone always on your side,
someone to help you give it one more try.

Or, do you ever feel you?re standing at the station
waiting for the train to come.
Do you ever wonder why there?s so much complication.
Why can?t life be simple and fun?
Simple and fun.
