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.
