Loreena McKennitt - A Hundred Wishes

If I had a hundred wishes
And only one of them could come true
I would wish that over this distance
I could be right there now with you

Chorus
Could we be in France again?
Dance beneath the olive trees
Lingering bodies on a deserted beach
Moon above to catch the breeze

In my eye I see you still
Darkened hair and a tender smile
Leaning out of the window sill
Clutching roses all the while

Chorus
Could we be in Spain again?
Dance beneath the olive trees
Mingling bodies on a deserted beach
Moon above to catch the breeze

If I had a hundred wishes
And only one of them could come true
I would wish that over this distance
I could be right there now with you

Do you remember the summer when
We took to the coast of Clare
Heard the ocean on the rocks
Listened to the music there

Chorus
Could we be in Ireland again?
Dance beneath the oak trees
Mingling bodies on a deserted beach
Moon above to catch the breeze

If I had a hundred wishes
And if only one of them could come true
I would wish that over this distance
I could be right there, now with you.

Source of the lyrics
The Quinlan Road website
with some minor corrections by me based what Loreena sings:
- 1st stanza, lines 2 and 4, after which it is the same as the last stanza
- 3rd stanza, line 2: "... and a tender smile"
- 2nd chorus, line 4: "The" removed, then matches other choruses
- Loreena repeats the 1st stanza after the 2nd chorus
- one comma and two periods removed, as the lyrics has no punctuation

Song Notes by Loreena

There are those who leave on journeys and those who are left behind. In whatever way separation manifests itself, it is comforting to remember the time spent with a loved one creating memories. This is another song I wrote during the same era as The Visit.
