Wish I'd Never

Words and Music by Colin Ward

Stepped off a plane in Chile, the rain was pouring down,
I smelled the coal fires burning, took me back to London town

Your senses take you places, you remember from long ago,
I wish they'd bring you back to me, I wish I'd never let you go.

I tasted food in Paris, like we shared in old Marseilles,
The memory was vivid, from soup to crème brulee,

Your senses take you places, you remember from long ago,
I wish they'd bring you back to me, I wish I'd never let you go.

I heard a song we used to sing, on the radio,
We stopped and listened every time, all those years ago

I saw a girl who looked like you, from blond hair to green eyes
It must have been my fault you left, I came to realize

I felt a woman's hand in mine, when she handed me my change
Her touch reminded me of you, before we broke the chain,

Your senses take you places, you remember from long ago,
I wish they'd bring you back to me, I wish I'd never let you go.
