Trying to Wish You Well (3:30) - Grant Dermody and Frank Fotusky

This upbeat song, written and sung by Grant Dermody, is about the road to forgiveness. Grant is joined by guitarist Frank Fotusky, who scorches the strings to complement Grant's fine harmonica. Getting over the feeling of being hurt badly takes time, willingness, and a little faith in the divine. Grant says, "Someone is in charge of Karma, and it ain't you."

LYRICS: TRYIN' TO WISH YOU WELL

Well, I'm tired, so tired, honey of the lies you tell.
I'm tired, so tired, honey of the lies you tell.
Well, goodbye baby, I'm trying to wish you well.

You're careful but you're evil, poison everything you see.
You're careful but you're evil, poison everything you see.
You fool everybody, honey, but you don't fool me.

You hurt me like you like it, then you smile and ask if I'm okay.
You hurt me like you like it, then you smile and ask if I'm okay.
If there's any justice anywhere, someone's gonna make you pay.

Our lives are like the evening sun, too soon setting.
I ain't got time to carry you, you need forgetting.
Resenting you is killing me, I gotta break out.
Inside us all is everything I hold sacred.

So goodbye baby, here is what I hope come true.
So goodbye baby, here is what I hope come true.
The best that God can give someone, gonna come round to you.

I'll be alright someday, love and me ain't through.
I'll be alright someday, love and me ain't through.
I'll trust somebody, honey, but it won't be you.
