I Wish You Well

Written By: Louis Gentile

I WISH YOU WELL
Words and music by Louis Gentile

I wish you well, in everything you ever want to do
I wish you well, and hope that you remember it is true
I wish you well

I wish success, the meaning of it now is up to you
I wish success, to find alone what we could never do
I wish you peace
The peace that you so dearly need to find inside
A peace that I could never seem to satisfy
For all the things you need to find
From me with all my heart I wish you well

To all the things that held us through the years
No shame to tell we laughed and cried
And dried each other’s tears
Who would have known
Someday we’d reconsider all the plans we made
Only time will show us if we’re not afraid

So now the time has come to go
I wish for you to know
I wish you well

I wish you strength
I’m sorry for the pain you never shared with me
And hope you’ll never hide again the things you need
So you can find the way to be all you can be from me
I wish you well

I WISH A WORLD

Written By: Louis Gentile

I WISH A WORLD

I wish a world of love, I wish a world of peace
I wish a world of hope, I wish the world release
I wish the flowers and rivers and animals, Joy and life that`s free
I wish a world the way the world was meant to be

I wish a world of trust, I wish a world that gives
I wish a world that shares, I wish a world that lives
I wish a world where people can learn to live in harmony
I wish a world the way the world was meant to be

Someday, we will see, Just how little it takes
To believe in a future for you and me

I wish a world that will see, I wish a world that will know
I wish a world that can be, I wish a world that will grow
I wish the world would hear these words ,And learn this philosophy
To make a world the way the world was meant to be
To make a world a beautiful world ,For you and me

UNDER 10

Written By: Louis Gentile

UNDER 10

Today the sunshine's all over me
You know I do find it filling me
With such a feeling, I want to tell you again
It`s times like this I'm happy to be Under 10

There's a rainbow, it carries me
Through the window and over the sea
Past the moon glow, ,And every creature is my friend
It's times like this I`m happy to be Under 10

You just can`t believe there is so much to do
For little girls and boys
It's a full time job and then there's homework too
Just when you think you're ahead, Then it's time to go to bed

But in the morning the birds will sing
An adventure, what the day will bring
Yes I know, I want to tell you again
Someday I'll grow up yes I know ,Until I know exactly when
I`ll take my time, And be happy to be Under 10
