I Wish, I Wish
(Cat Stevens)

Lyrics:

I wish I knew, I wish I knew
what makes me, me, and what makes you, you.
It’s just another point of view, ooo.
A state of mind I’m going through, yes.
So what I see is never true, ahhh.
I wish I could tell, I wish I could tell
what makes a heaven what makes a hell.
And do I get to ring my bell, ooo.
Or land up in some dusty cell, no.
While others reach the big hotel, yeah.

I wish I had, I wish I had
the secret of good, and the secret of bad.
Why does this question drive me mad? ahhh.
‘Cause I was taught when but a lad, yes,
That bad was good and good was bad, ahhh.

I wish I knew the mystery of
that thing called hate, and that thing called love.
What makes the in-between so rough? ahhh.
Why is it always push and shove? ahhh
I guess I just don’t know enough, yes
