Bruce Springsteen With Every Wish Lyrics

With Every Wish Lyrics

Bruce Springsteen

  • Ol' catfish in the lake, we called him Big Jim
  • When I was a kid, my only wish was to get my line in him
  • Skipped church one Sunday rowed out and throw'd in my line
  • Jim took that hook pole and me right over the side
  • Went driftin' down past old tires and rusty cans of beer
  • The Angel of the lake whispered in my ear
  • "Before you chose your wish son, you better think first
  • With every wish there comes a curse"
  • I fell in love with beautiful Doreen
  • She was the prettiest thing this old town'd ever seen
  • I courted her and I made her mine
  • But I grew jealous whenever another man come walkin' down the line
  • And my jealousy made me treat her mean and cruel
  • She sighed, "Bobby oh Bobby, you're such a fool
  • Don't you know before you choose your wish, you'd better think first
  • 'Cause with every wish there comes a curse"
  • These days I sit around and laugh at the many rivers I've crossed
  • But on the far banks there's always another forest where a man get lost
  • Well, there in the high trees love's bluebird glides
  • Guiding us across to another river on the other side
  • And there someone is waitin' with a look in her eyes
  • And though my heart's grown weary and more than a little bit shy
  • And I don't drink from her waters to quench my thirst
  • Leave the angels to worry with every wish
