I WISH IT WEREN’T TRUE

Lyrics by Walter J. Wojtanik

“Enough is enough”, I heard you say,
and I was a wreck when you went away.
     I wish it were easy,
     I wish it were true,
     You went to my heart,
     I had nothing to prove.
But you had different interests,
and I’ll say it again, I wish it weren’t true.

“I think you’re sweet”‘ I heard you say,
that’s when I figured that you would stay.
     But where did you go?
     You made such a fuss
     I wish it weren’t true
     that we would be a bust.
We had different reasons,
and after it’s said, I wish it weren’t true.

    You sold me your lines
         and I bought all your goods,
     your sad angel’s disguise
         had me thinking I should,
     But here at the end we’re not even friends
         I’ve had it with you! (I wish it were true.)

“There’s never enough”, I heard somebody say,
that’s what I thought when I asked you to stay.
     I wish it were easy,
     I wish it were you.
     You had nothing to prove;
     I wish it were true.
And as you cut my heart out
you just left me to shout, “I wish it weren’t true!”.

  1. Hi Walt, I just got to the end of the Mr Linky links and there you were right at the begining. 🙂 Love your take on the words. Read like a country and western song and then I saw you tagged it with lyrics, music. Bet it would sound great. Do you write music?

  2. When I get the phrasing down that I want. I play by ear; I can not read or write music. I can just play. So I’m recording everything to “perfect” it, and saving the resulting “good one”. Still work on “Angels Cried at Christmas” written after the Sandy Hook shootings.
    It’s a process, that’s my defense.

    I’m sticking to it.
