Dandelion

oh dandelion
if I make a wish on you
and then I set you free
onto the breeze
will my wish come true?

oh dandelion
I used to be the same
nothing could hold me down
now I’m earthly bound
oh what a shame

why be afraid
after all I have done
all that I’ve seen
lost and won
nobody knows when the
future will come
but it must be any day

ah dandelion
it’s so good to see you fly
and when at last you land
I hope you’ll understand
this is not goodbye

oh why be afraid?
after all I have done
all that I’ve seen
lost and won
  {ah-ah-ah-ah}
nobody knows when the
future will come
but it must be any day

oh dandelion
when I make my wish on you
and then I set you free
onto the breeze
will my wish come true?
and when I set you free
onto the breeze
will my wish come true?


mm-hmm, ba-dee-da-da [etc.]
