Story behind the song
“A true collaboration, 50/50, with Troy Donoughue of The Steel Scream Project. The words were written in 1991, and we both tried to come up with our own versions over time, but neither of us got it quite right. I wasn’t until 2001 that we finally got back together to write the definitive music, and it came together perfectly.”
Flip a coin into the fountain, make your dreams come true,
maybe just a hint of magic is all it takes for you.
Health, Wealth, Someone to love and Heaven your home to be,
but be careful what you ask for, you're only allowed three.
One too many wishes in the wishing well, one too many wishes for one man to tell,
one too many wishes, your soul to sell, one too many wishes in the wishing well.
Took your health for granted, a body that was fit and lean,
lost your job, lost your lady, your life's torn at the seams.
You look at your past behind you and wonder what went wrong,
dreams turn into nightmares, you hear the siren's song. *
Driving your head into the wall, frustration fills your life,
reality comes crashing down, it cuts you like a knife.
It occurs to you what's going on, there's a lesson to be learned,
happiness can almost be bought but Heaven can only be earned. *
