Wishful Thinking Lyrics

by Carole King


by Carole King

I see you, but you don't see me

Like a ghost of the future hovering dark and dreamy

You fade in and out of the mist
Do you even exist, except in my wishful thinking

I reach for you, but I can't touch you

I feel you just beyond a star
Do you know how much you are all I ever wanted
Is it too much too soon

Just baying at the moon
Am I foolishly dreaming
Playing impossible visions like an elementary tune

How I wish that I could realize my heart

But it's only wishful thinking on my part.
