(I Spent Hours Again) Wishing You Well

from Four Ambient Tales by Billie Ray Martin



I wonder why you're back to see me
and I wonder where you've been
and when you told me you happened to be near
you know I was afraid to ask
and I pretend
I don't care when
I spent hours again
wishing you well

oh I wish that I could
stop you
telling me about what's new
you'll tell me how wonderful you feel
and how far away you'd go
and I spent hours again
wishing you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
I oh well

oh I've heard that you were seen
wandering round this town
oh yeah, you're gonna tell me this is just a rumour
I know
you ain't been around
don't tell me lies
you don't need this guise
I'll wish you well again
because I spent hours again, oh
wishing you well
I wish you well
I wish you well
I oh well
I wish you well
I wish you well
