My Wish - Rascal Flatts


The Experience: My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to. What do you wish for the people you care about in life? Is your love so true and disinterested that you don't even worry about what the side effects might be for you?

The Meaning: In My Wish Rascal Flatts reminds listeners that true love does not first look at its own desires, but above all focuses on the needs of the one it loves. So much so that it would even be willing to let that person go if that is what makes them happy. The tone of the song shows the pain that this seperation causes and the longing he feels to be back together. Yet what he really wants is that ...you never need to carry more than you can hold... and that ...you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too. He won't give up loving her, but he won't make it about him either.

Ask yourself: Is my love this pure and empty of self interest?



LYRICS:

I hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin’ ‘til you find the window
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
But more than anything, more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

I hope you never look back but you never forget
All the ones who love you
And the place you left
I hope you always forgive and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get
Oh, you find God’s grace in every mistake
And always give more than you take
But more than anything, yeah more than anything

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there gettin’ where you’re gettin’ to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish

This is my wish
I hope you know somebody loves you
May all your dreams stay big
