I Wish I Was Lyrics

I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle
Lighting up your living room high on the mantle
I could bring some romance without any scandal
And then when you were done you’d just put me out

…………..*…………..

I wish I was a tune you sang in your kitchen
Putting your groceries away and washing your dishes
I could float around your tongue and ease the tension
And then when you were done you’d just quiet down

…………..*…………..

But if I get too close
Will the magic fade?
Would I turn you off or away?
If I pull you in
Would I push you out
Of something here you care about?
I’m at a loss for what to do
I’m drawn to you

…………..*…………..

I wish I was a sweater wrapped around your hips
And when it got too cold into me you’d slip
And when the sun came back you would hang me up
And I would watch you while you undress

…………..*…………..

But if I get too close
Will the magic fade?
Would I turn you off or away?
If I pull you in
Now would I push you out
Of something here you care about?
Well I’m at a loss for what to do
But I’m drawn to you

…………..*…………..

I’m not a song
I am not a sweater
I’m not a fire
I am something better
I’m a man in love writing you a letter
Will you take it?
Will you keep it?
Will you read it?
Believe it
I love you
I’m sorry



I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle

Lighting up your living room high on the mantle

I could bring some romance without any scandal

And then when you were done you’d just put me out

I wish I was a tune you sang in your kitchen

Putting your groceries away and washing your dishes

I could float around your tongue and ease the tension

And then when you were done you’d just quiet down

But if I get too close

Will the magic fade?

Would I turn you off or away?

If I pull you in

Would I push you out

Of something here you care about?

Well I’m at a loss for what to do

But I’m drawn to you

I wish I was a sweater wrapped around your hips

And when it got too cold into me you’d slip

And when the sun came back you would hang me up

And I would watch you while you undress

But if I get too close

Will the magic fade?

Would I turn you off or away?

If I pull you in

Would I push you out

Of something here you care about?

Well I’m at a loss for what to do

But I’m drawn to you






I’m not a song

I am not a sweater

I’m not a fire

I am something better

I’m a man in love writing you a letter

Will you take it

Will you keep it

Will you read it

Believe it

I love you

I’m sorry.
