I Wish…

Under the gun, I know. I heard this song MULTIPLE times on the way back from ATL this weekend and decided on Sunday this would be my lyric. No, it’s not the greatest lyric (I promise, these are STEVIE’s lyrics and I didn’t do many of the things this says)…but just pay attention to the chorus.

Although I’m learning more and more that people sometimes are only in our life for a seasons and seasons MUST change, it’s nice to be back in the familiar, as I was this weekend–feeling I was back in college, wondering why those days must end.

PLEASE click on the link and enjoy a little Stevie today. You know you wanna groove at your desk…just do it.

I Wish–Stevie Wonder

Looking back on when I
Was a little nappy headed boy
Then my only worry
Was for Christmas what would be my toy
Even though we sometimes
Would not get a thing
We were happy with the
Joy the day would bring

Sneaking out the back door
To hang out with those hoodlum friends of mine
Greeted at the back door
With boy thought I told you not to go outside,
Tryin your best to bring the
Water to your eyes
Thinkin it might stop her
From woopin your behind

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
Cause I love them so

Brother says hes tellin
bout you playin doctor with that girl
Just don’t tell Ill give you
Anything you want in this whole wide world
Mama gives you money for Sunday school
You trade yours for candy after church is through

Smokin cigarettes and writing something nasty on the wall (you nasty boy)
Teacher sends you to the principals office down the wall
You grow up and learn that kinda thing ain’t right
But while you were doin it-it sure felt outta sight

I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
I wish those days could come back once more
Why did those days ev-er have to go
