Reneé Rapp – I Wish Lyrics

Reneé Rapp I Wish Lyrics

I was ten years old when I realized
Some goodbyes are forever
So what’s that mean for you and I?
Thought we’d always be together

How can the person who taught me to breathe
Take their last breath right in front of me?
I know too much now

I wish I could still see the world through those eyes
Could still see the colors
But they’re not as clear or as bright
Oh, the older we get, the colors they change
Yeah, hair turns to gray, but the blues here to stay
So I wish, I wish

I remember seeing my dad cry
For the first time, we were downstairs
Talking ’bout how his dad died
And how he wished he could’ve been there
He said

How could the person who taught me to breathe
Take their last breath now in front of me?
I know too much now

I wish I could still see the world through those eyes
Could still see the colors
But they’re not as clear or as bright
Oh, the older we get, the colors they change
Yeah, hair turns to gray, but the blue stays the same
Oh, I wish, I wish

Stay a little longer
I’m not ready for you to go
It hasn’t even happened
But I have been mourning since ten years old
Stay a little longer

I wish I could still see the world through those eyes
Well, I still see the colors
But they’re not as clear or as bright
Oh, the older we get, the colors they change
Your hair turns to gray, but the blues, yeah, they stay
So I wish, I wish
