Musical: Recording "Wish I May"

Finished my second piece in the new home studio. This one's a pop-rock love song called "Wish I May." Gaining an important insight from weaklingrecords's hit tune "Fell", I wrote this one to be a non-gender-specific song so everyone could sing it and "own" it. Thanks, Doug. I already began to know my away around the recording process a bit more on this one and so I think you might be able to hear that, but the song is more complex anyway, even though it's a straightforward pop tune. Along with the song I put up yesterday, "She Walks In Beauty," this is my other "collaborative" piece. That one was with Lord Byron. Kevin Fleming came up with the nugget of this one and then tossed it to me.

I don't think I really have the voice for this one, especially at the end. It's too weak and not enough of a "rock" voice. I'd love to hear Mark Lang sing this tune with his rock/gospel voice. I need to seriously train my voice at some point and see what it can really do. So, with no more qualifications, I give you "Wish I May."


Wish I May

Pick a star this night
and hold me in your arms so tight
and say you might
make a wish upon that distant light
Oh say, "I wish I may, wish I might"

Lying on the car’s hood
as worlds circle overhead
I remember why we need to run away
why we flee the city streets
We pull the blankets closer
lift our eyes above the hills

Pick a star this night
and hold me in your arms so tight
and say you might
make a wish upon that distant light
Oh say, "I wish I may, wish I might"

What we can’t have
always taunts us
Love time eternity
mem’ries haunt us
Days slip away, but not now.
Not when we want us.

Pick a star this night
and hold me in your arms so tight
and say you might
make a wish upon that distant light
Oh say, "I wish I may, wish I might"

Music comes at unawares
Your hands a melody on my face
Star light, star bright
dancing on the lines you trace
The two of us sharing
silent songs in our embrace

Pick a star this night
and hold me in your arms so tight
and say you might
make a wish upon that distant light
Oh say, "I wish I may, wish I might"

Let the stars fall on us now
Let the world burn in the night
Let time run to never end
Let the stars fall on us now
Let the world burn in the night
Let time run to never end
You here with me
In your arms
Never end
