Wish I could be
Your confidant
As I was when first we met
Our hearts were free
Between you and me
There were no secrets yet
We heard the birds
They sang no words
Each note we knew was true
Wish I could be
Your confidant
And again confide in you

Wish I could be
Your confidant
Resting in your arms
Instead I lie awake
In night’s dark lake
Beset by false alarms
Solace I sought
From troubled thought
Nightmares rushing in
Wish I could be your confidant
And we’d share dreams again

BRIDGE
I’ve waited all the Summer
Though Fall and Winter’s chill
Come Springtime in the Valley
Will I be wishing still….

…That I could be
Your confidant
As I was when first we met
Our hearts were free
Between you and me
There were no secrets yet
