I wish you love....

Just heard this song for the first time... Think it was Natalie Coles version, but unsure. The lyrics though.... just captured something.

Will try and find a version to stick up here for you to hear.


Goodbye, no use leading with our chins

This is where our story ends

Never lovers, ever friends

Goodbye, let our hearts call it a day

But before you walk away

I sincerely want to say

I wish you bluebirds in the spring

To give your heart a song to sing

And then a kiss, but more than this

I wish you love

And in july a lemonade

To cool you in some leafy glade

I wish you health

But more than wealth

I wish you love

My breaking heart and I agree

That you and I could never be

So with my best

My very best

I set you free

I wish you shelter from the storm

A cozy fire to keep you warm

But most of all when snowflakes fall

I wish you love

But most of all when snowflakes fall

I wish you love

I wish you love

I wish you love, love, love, love, love

I wish you love

Cool song - and is that a sunset or rise? Beautiful whatever it is. ec

Those lyrics are beautiful, in a hauntingly painful way. It means a parting and accepting of reality, but with grace and no bitterness, continuity. I may need to find this Natalie Cole song!

Beautiful picture as well (as always!).

Changed my mind - I've just heard a couple of other versions of the song, and I think I like Nancy Wilsons and Esther Phillips versions the most. Just very cool.
And yes Yours Truly, it does encompase the whole saying goodbye thing well.

The photo is a sunset. The last of my sunrises lacked the colour this one had.

A good but painfully expressive song. Loved the sunset picture. Vivid.

Oh wow, what powerful lyrics! (And what a great new picture of yourself!)

There's an interesting version of the song on iTunes on the "Prime" soundtrack.
