Lyrics

Down The Wishing Well
words and music © Grant Maloy Smith

You're drunk, but not on liquor
?Time heals, but love is quicker?
He's smart but he don't show it?
You're brave but you don't know it

??Plaid shirts and sideways glances?
You like the way he dances
?You're scared of saying too much?
He's scared of acting too rough??

High stakes, heart aches?
You've been down this road before?
Good times, that's fine?
But it's love you're looking for
?One throw, eyes closed?
The silver coin that you cast like a spell?
Down the Wishing Well??

You smile when no one's looking?
Fireflies and backyard cooking?
He's loud but you don't mind it
?Hope's lost but then you find it

High stakes, heart aches?
You've been down this road before?
Good times, that's fine?
But it's love you're looking for
?One throw, eyes closed?
The silver coin that you cast like a spell?
Down the Wishing Well??

Time heals, but love is quicker
