john’s lament lyrics – altered

i remember summers when we played
promises we made
o how that time fades
summers go with bitter tears i cry
looking to the sun god, wondering why
you had to go away, go away
i wish that i could be there
i wish that i could be there
you were there with all your pretty prayers
solace in your care
but who said life is fair
i want you to feel the way i do
cause i can be like you
i wanna be with you, be with you
i wish that i could be there
i wish that i could be there
oh ho, i wish that i could be there
be there, be there
i wish that i could be there
be there, be there
then i’d never be alone
i wish that i could be there
then i’d never be alone
i wish that i could be there
i could be there
i wish that i could be there
i wish that i could be there
oh ho i wish that i could be there
be there, be there
i wish that i could be there
be there, be there
i wish that i could be there
i wish that i could be there
