Lyrics

I wish I could sweep up all your sorrows in my hand

Then blow them all away astride a breeze --

Let the wind take the sadness far away from here

And allow your weary, troubled heart to ease.

I would blow away your sorrows on a breeze.

 

I wish I could soak up every doubt that has crossed your mind.

I’d wring them all out someplace nowhere near.

Next, I would shower you with steady rains of hope and pride

So the sounds of confidence were all you’d hear.

I would wring your doubts out someplace nowhere near.

 

I wish I could paint for you a mural full of happiness;

I’d search to find the brightest tones and hues.

I would color just as high and wide as you can see

So happiness entirely filled your view.

I wish I could do all this for you.
