Katie Herzig- Wish You Well

Charles Cowling

 

Here’s a good funeral song… except for the line ‘I want to feel your fire burning’, perhaps. 

More on Katie Herzig here.

 

I, I want to wish you well
I didn’t watch you go
Cause I suppose I don’t know how
I, I will remember you
Not the way you left but how you lived
And what you knew

I, I want to feel your hands
I want to feel your fire burning
Right from where I stand

I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want toknow it’s you
When I hear your voice inside my head
Inside my room
I, want to touch the sky
I want to see the stars twinkle
Like they were your eyes

I’ll find my way
You showed me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want to smell your scent
I want to breathe the air I did before
Before you left

I, I want to wish you well
The only reason my heart beats
Is cause you showed it how

I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how
You show me how
You showed me how

Yes, except for that line perhaps! A bit like the song “I know you by heart”. A beautiful song but uncomfortable when Eva Cassidy sings:
“The glowing fire
Lights up your face in orange and gold.”
