If Wishes Were Horses

Don't it make you want to cry
Don't it make you want to laugh
How love starts in the future
And ends in the past?

We started with lips that promised
Let's not end it with lips that lie
Let's make love once more like we mean it
As you sleep I'll steal away from goodbye

I wish we could manage forever
I wish you wouldn't think that I lied
But if wishes were horses
Darlin', beggars would ride

When you wake in the morning
You won't find a note
I'm leaving the best of my heart,
Not an excuse that I wrote.

When we're beginning there's no way to know
What the ending will finally show
And there's only one truth that time has told
I can't stay and you can't go.

I wish we could manage forever
I wish you wouldn't think that I lied
But if wishes were horses
Darlin', beggars would ride

1975
A briefing abt those times in the year '75 that prompted this piece could have been a bonus!
