I’ve got a secret 
and I wish I could tell you
I think one day I will
Just to see how you feel
But here’s a clue
Maybe two...

It’s like a field of colorful pastels 
in permanent bloom
Made perfect when she walks into view
Sun shine silhouette  
following her like a golden glow
Appearing out of nowhere
like never before
She’s a dream come true
And I wish I could tell you

The honey bees pause
To see the sweetest thing
Nature’s finest work
Listen to the birds as they sing …her praise
Animals are stuck in gazes
Confirming her queendom 
in this kingdom

She is a mystery unseen
and this glimpse will last forever
Stories to be told of her beauty
Will grow and get better
For generations to come
One thing’s for sure
She is the one
I really want to tell you

And the secret is out
But I didn’t tell
Nature took it’s course
beauty by force
eyes had to look
one time was all it took
yes we’re all hooked
ohh she I can’t resist
But it’s a secret
and I’d be remised 
If I didn’t say 
It might be you
But it’s a secret
and I wish I could tell you 
I think one day I will

If you haven’t already figured you out
In the mirror you’ll see there’s no doubt
I got a secret but i’d rather have you

i wish we could get rid of fine print
I wish people would say what they meant
I wish rich people would spend every cent
Yeah I wish

I wish you knew I tried
that I tried to love you even when I lied
I wish when I broke your heart mine died
Yeah I wish

But my wishes seem to be vapors
So quickly they disappear
I close my eyes wanting you
and open them and you’re not here
So I pull out my pen and put ink to paper
It all looks good but then…reality becomes the eraser
Yeah I wish

Not on my side
But it keeps track
Can't turn my back
Or I've lost seconds maybe minutes

Days move too fast
Nothing seems to last
Youth has expired
So times foot is off the brake

It used to move slow
When life was a question 
I didn't know the answer to 
But since I've grown
Mysteries are now known
And lights are always green

Life waits for no one
Time keeps ticking
Don't blink now
Just keep reminiscing
It's over in a flash
Like the 60 yard dash
Hopefully it won't crash 
And allow me to make a splash 
And leave my mark on this world
It's only a matter of time...
