Drinks below the summer skies
Love and loss hidden in your eyes
There's a future in there, I know
Send me a sigh of at least a sign
Whatever it is, honey, I'll make it mine
I just wish you didn't have to go

Came along before the storm fell
Wherever you are, I wish you well
If it's a million miles or down the road
Letters, gifts, and flower lace
Picture frames with your smiling face
I just wish you didn't have to go

Speak to me, don't make me guess
I did something wrong and I'll confess
I'd like to say I'm sorry so you know
Tired winds blow away my tired cries
Of whispered hellos and goodbyes
I just wish you didn't have to go

Long ago, before I knew your name
I was stuck and lost in a foreign place
There was still a whole world left to show
Stars would fall with a wish to say
Now they're all wished away
I'm left to wish you didn't have to go
