Wishing You Well


words and music by Rick Paul
The Road That I Must Take album cover

From the album The Road That I Must Take

There’s not much I can say
After what you just said
Goodbye’s not what I’d hoped to hear
Now I can’t get it out of my head
All those words I’d rehearsed
They just grew wings and flew
After they tied up my tongue
When you said we were through

So now I’m wishing you well like some old school acquaintance
Going through hell, but numb to the pain
Since you rattled my world, and my mind came unfurled
My heart wants to yell, but I’m wishing you well

Had that little square box
Hidden inside my coat
I was on my way down to one knee
When your words made me choke
Now I’m all come undone
Guess I’ve got no Plan B
I’ve lost my composure
But I can’t let you see

So I’m wishing you well like some old school acquaintance
Going through hell, but numb to the pain
Since you rattled my world, and my mind came unfurled
My heart wants to yell, but I’m wishing you well

I can’t believe what I’m saying
My heart and brain are charred
I should be crying or screaming
But I sound like a greeting card

Wishing you well like some old school acquaintance
Going through hell, but numb to the pain
Since you rattled my world, and my mind came unfurled
My heart wants to yell, but I’m wishing you well
Like some old school acquaintance
Going through hell, but numb to the pain
Since you rattled my world, and my mind came unfurled
My heart wants to yell, but I’m wishing you well

I’m wishing you well
Like some old school acquaintance
Wishing you well
I feel like a greeting card
Wishing you well
