For everything

For all the things I never do
That once were mine to dream
For wishing I was there with you
with strawberries and cream

For all the things I want to be
That never come my way
For wishing you were here with me
Where you and I could stay

For all the things I could have been
That maybe can still be
For all the things I should have seen
Oh, and a cup of tea.

I want to tell the world that I
Am going to do them all
I’ve still the time to touch the sky
When you first come to call
