If I had one wish?
I would ask for a day
To say to my Dad, all I didn’t get to say
Everything on my mind
In every possible way

If I had one wish?
I would dance to hearts content
My emotions would not be bent
Because my father would be here.

If only one day I could rent…

If I had one wish?
I’d wish all time away
Without that record, we’d have longer days
Untracked time with loved ones
And just enjoy all life’s display

I would wish away Eve
And her eating from that tree
So that we all could live forever
In God’s kingdom, happy and care-free

I would illegalize “goodbye” 
Then it would never be in existence
Our loved ones couldn’t die
And we could find other reasons to cry

I have to pick just one you say…
Well I’ll condense them all together…

If I had one wish?
I guess,
Eternal life’s the card I’d play
