Wish Me Well

With Jacob Dyer (lead guitar).

I copy those whose longing’s real,
for I’ve not yet reached the state to feel
half the heartache that I tell.
Yet, fellow traveller, wish me well.

It’s not that I wish to deceive;
words of mine shan’t make you grieve.
All is borrowed that I sell.
Yet wish me honest, wish me well.

Oh, to feel as those who feel,
whom Love has set with her red seal!
Could the heartache that I tell
be, smiling traveller, yours as well?

Come, let’s pick on the tavern step
dervish pockets – love-change get.
If you’re not one, one might say,
‘Poor pilferers, come this Way!’

I copy those whose longing’s real,
for I’ve not yet reached the state to feel
half the heartache that I tell.
Yet, mystery traveller, wish me well.
