I fell asleep last night with a song on repeat,
Turned up as loud as it could be,
Surprised when I found tears in my eyes.
And I missed 11:11 last night,
So here’s my wish…

If I could wish for anything
I’d wish for you and me how we used to be
Fingers tangled together while we felt so free
I’d wish that hot June day away,
And I’d still be the happiest girl on Earth.
I’d wish you and I could run away,
Never to look back on this place.
Yeah, if I could wish for anything.

I just want one more day with you
To lay in your arms- pretend it’s true,
‘Cuz when I’m with you
I feel like this world doesn’t always tear me apart,
And I wish that I could give you my heart.
Oh I couldn’t find a shooting star last night,
So here’s my wish…

If I could wish for anything
I’d wish for you and me how we used to be
Fingers tangled together while we felt so free
I’d wish that hot June day away,
And I’d still be the happiest girl on Earth.
I’d wish you and I could run away,
Never to look back on this place.
Yeah, if I could wish for anything.

But I’ve gotta face reality,
Where you and me weren’t meant to be,
Your strong arms will never wrap around my waist again,
I’ll never feel your lips on my head.
You’re just a daydream, a fantasy,
And you had your time with me.

But if I could wish for anything
I’d wish for you and me how we used to be
Fingers tangled together while we felt so free
I’d wish that hot June day away,
And I’d still be the happiest girl on Earth.
I’d wish you and I could run away,
Never to look back on this place.
Yeah, if I could wish for anything.

Oh, I fell asleep last night with a song on repeat.

This is an old piece that I just found while sifting through my documents, and thought maybe it was better than I had originally thought.
