My Wishful Thinking

I don’t know why today
I feel so young, so eager to stay
I want to just run and run
in the deep forests and meadows under the sun
I want to sit there once again
and listen to the sound of passing train
wishing it can all happen again
you wish for stars and stars really come down
I want to touch the smiling wind
I want to bring that time back
and let my wishful thinking
fly from East to West, from North to South
let my wishful thinking flow
like the water that comes from melting of snow
let my wishful thinking grow
like green grass in garden
freshening everything, illuminating every moment
let my thoughts and wishful thinking set free
like the paper boats we used to put in street lake
when we were young and carefree
did those boats reach somewhere
did someone notice them?

There were so many associations
so many affiliations
oh I just want to walk down that memory lane
and touch the cold water of the lake
I just want to smile and smile
sing all those childhood songs
I want to sit there once again
and watch the rainbow after the rain
I want to cling to the moving clouds
and travel along, around and around
let my wishful thinking
fly from East to West, from North to South
so I let my wishful thinking flow
like the water that comes from melting of snow
let my wishful thinking grow
like green grass in garden
freshening everything, illuminating every moment
let my thoughts and wishful thinking set free
like the paper boats we used to put in street lake
when we were young and carefree
did those boats reach somewhere
did someone notice them?
