We did have blues for breakfast, lamenting for lunch

Tryin' to get over the fact we fought more than much

Dolour for dinner, thinking why did that happen

Regretting the decisions we took by being open

And I did wish for a solution soon

 

My long-time wish, it did come true

It only took some time to

I've never been so fine

I don't think I'd come down cloud nine

My long-time wish, it did come true

 

My long-time wish, it did come true

 

That's sad that we didn't, talk to each other like before

I always wished, that you'd be back at our door, once more

I talked to you, but I want 'em to

'Cause after that bad time, things were different, way different 

And I did wish for a solution soon

 

My long-time wish, it did come true

It only took some time to

I've never been so fine

I don't think I'd come down cloud nine

My long-time wish, it did come true

 

My long-time wish, it did come true

 

I hate that y'all don't talk and make me the moderator

But still you, you loved one another (each other)

And those scars gave you more hate than ever (ever)

Now it's okay, it's okay, it's okay

You were all so good until that thing

Without knocking, It intruded in (It's alright, it's alright)

And we all did feel like we're out of our mind (Mind)

But, now it's okay, it's okay, it's just, okay, yeah

 

I did wish for a solution soon

My long-time wish, it did come true

It only took some time to

I've never been so fine

I don't think I'd come down cloud nine

(Don't think I'd come down cloud nine)

My long-time wish, it did come true (yeah, it's true)

(Oh, yeah it's true, oh yeah)

My long-time wish, it did come true (yeah it's true, yeah it's true)

 

You're united

You're back

 

My long-time wish, it did come true

"I believe in wishes and in a person's ability to make a wish come true, I really do. And a wish is more than a wish.. it's a goal that your conscience and subconscience can help make reality." -Michael Jackson-

@CaliFranceGurl648, Thank you...🤝🏻🤝🏻🤝🏻
I did get the first three lines based on that song but I don't even know how it goes because I haven't listen to it even once; I just spotted the lyrics of that song somewhere and I was like, why don't I create lyrics like that for my next piece??? And there it is...
And I'm more than just glad to know that you like Wincent too...He's soooo amazing!!! Well, maybe I could write a music review about him...Thank you for the idea...👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻

@IzzyMossie137, if you record it, I'd love to listen...
And yes, I watched it and Georgia won...I just LOVE Wincent Weiss...I'm a great fan of him...I wish I know German because I don't want to spoil his songs by singing them and it's hard not to sing them...❤❤❤

@Afra, I love the lyrics. Maybe this should be recorded. Lucky you know a good singer, lol. Just kidding about the good singer part.
Btw, i love diamonds too. Its a beautiful song. And about the voice, do u see the voice kids germany 2022? Team Wincent sings it in the finals and it is amazing, just like this poem.
