I wish for one wish

Every being has a great desire
Something they truly long for
Something that no price can buy
A small opportunity, an open door

If only i could live a fairytale
if only i can live a dream, yes i wish

I wait for it longingly every night and every day
I seek it religiously, i dig for it unknowingly
It will come to me shortly, yes thats what i always say
expectation is my master and it rules so bitterly

It is ever so close, it is never that far
If only i could reach out, yes if only i wish

One day i will find this treasure, yes i know i will
No clue will ever lead me, no map will ever guide me
Maybe soon it will reveal itself, on the top of a bright green hill
The chest is already here, all i need, yes all i need is the key

I can see what i am after, i can feel its presence
if only i could reach out and touch it, if only i wish

Finally, oh finally i have found what i have searched long for
It is not a glistening diamond or a clump of gold
Fame nor fortune has it hugged me with, but i tell you
It is my own journey, yes the greatest tale i have told

I have more treasure to find, yes more chests to unlock
If only i can continue my dream, yes only If i wish

I wish for one wish
