1st Verse
Wish you could smile
Wish I could make you happy
Wish there were rainbows all the time
I'd wish for a pot of gold
For every troubled soul
I'm just wishing I could sing a healing song........

2nd Verse
So, tell me the words to say
We'll chase these Blues away
And laugh when the cow jumps over the moon..
I might sing a lullaby
I hope it won't make you cry
I'm just tryin' to sing a healing song.........

But from where I sit
It looks like the sky may be falling, falling down.....
And from where I sit
In this beautiful world, I hear a troubling sound

3rd Verse
Don't know if I can mend these wounds?
We sure could use a silver spoon
With a storm that's blowin' harder than before
Thought I saw the river rise
Thought I caught a tear in your eye
I'm just hoping I can sing a healing song...........

Repeat 1st Verse

You always have good stuff.... this is another one...

Enjoyed the melody. Piano carries the song well.

very much a Leonard Cohen feel to this, the verses and the lyrics work quite well - the use of a 2nd vocal is nice, although not sure about its use in the chorus, basically because it makes the overall vocal line too strong for the piano accompaniment.
vocals are sung with feeling.

Where do I begin? Well first off the keyboards were spot on loved the playing. The vocals were not the strongest however fit the song and the arrangement nicely. The instrumentation was just a piano but very well played. The arrangement was good as well. Lyrically very meaningful

The highlight for me is the heartfelt piano playing, which truly brings the song to life. Elton John comes to mind... It is not a mere recording, it is a performance, which literally jumps out and holds the lucky listener till the end!! I love the last line 'wish there were rainbows all the time'.

love the voice ...smooth ... sounds healing .. fantastic song
