08. Wish That

Now Is Not Forever
by B.Reith



 

Please don't call me anymore
I can't open up that door 'cause it hurts too bad oh
My heart's still wounded and sour it needs time to
Heal and each time you come around it's cut open again
All is fair in love and war
But I'm not strong enough to keep coming back for more
I'll admit it, so we live and so we learn
Thanks for teaching, I'd best be leaving before I wind up dead

Oh how I wish that I could just get back
The piece of my heart that I gave to you oh
Yes I'll admit that I'm still a bit mad
Oh well I guess that's just the way love goes

I hope you don't misunderstand
You deserve a real good man, let's just hope he's strong 'cause
You've been dealt a real good hand and my cards don't
Have enough hearts to play your silly games

Fool me once and shame on you play me twice and I'm the fool
Now I see I moved too fast, wishing I could take it back it's late for that
But I learned from my mistake, I'll never make that mistake again

(Brian Reith copyright 2009)

Behind the Song:
"It's funny seeing people's reaction to the first line of this song: "Please don't call me anymore." Basically what happened was I got hurt by a special someone and couldn't remain friends because, well, it hurt too badly. Wish That is a John Mayer-ish song, being honest about the regret of investing time and energy in a relationship that didn't pan out. My favorite line is "You've been dealt a real good hand and my cards don't have enough hearts to play your silly games." I think people will really be able to relate to this song." - B.Reith
