Wishing Well

Updated: Nov 9, 2021

Hey there wishing well

Take me back to where the angels fell

I'm just tired of waiting for this storm to break

I've tried but I can't see

A place where I was meant to be

Someone's imitating the space I take

Maybe I'm a simple man

I don't pretend to understand

The workings of a system they say we need

But this I know and this I feel

There's plenty got a rotten deal

Caught between the heating bill and a mouth to feed

Now I'm inclined to think that maybe we have lost our way

The water's thrown out with the baby

Someone's going to have to pay

Hey there wishing well

Take me back to where the angel fell

I'm just tired of waiting for this storm to break

Nothing's really broken it was meant to work this way

A poor man's left to pin his hopes on seven balls come Saturday

Hey there wishing well

This old handcart's bound for hell

Find me something new to sell I beg of thee

Come on, come on you lucky charm

Do your stuff cause they mean me harm

Take this silver from my palm

Lead me gently by the arm

Hey there wishing well

Take me back to where the angels fell

I'm just tired of waiting for this storm to break

I've tried but I can't see

A place where I was meant to be

Someone's imitating the space I take
