Allegiance The Musical - Wishes On The Wind Lyrics

"Wishes On The Wind" is a song from the musical Allegiance performed by Lea Salonga (Kei) & Telly Leung (Sammy). Music & Lyrics by Jay Kuo.

KEI:
At this time each year
As we celebrate the harvest
We hang a wish high
Upon a wishing tree

SAMMY:
If the wind's strong enough
To collect your wish and take it
Tradition says
That your wish will come be

TATSUO:
Once again I make a wish to honor
The memory of your mother

SAMMY:
What's it say?

TATSUO:
If you study Japanese, you would know
"For my daughter, a husband. For my son-"

SAMMY:
Lemme guess. Law school

TATSUO:
I would settle for respect

KEI:
This time of year
Always makes me think of Mama
She loved this day
Though her wishes were few
She was the heartbeat
Of every celebration

SAMMY:
You know that sounds a lot like you

KEI:
Then maybe wishes do come true
Wishes on the wind
Drifting through the night
Connecting friends and family
As they float away from sight

KEI & SAMMY:
Wishes on the wind
Are wishes that we share
Not only for ourselves, but for
The ones we love
Who'll always be there

SAMMY:
For my sister, I wish
For a cottage by the ocean
A quiet place
That's entirely her own

KEI:
For my brother, I wish
For great journeys and adventures
To see the world 'til he
Fin'ly misses home

SAMMY:
I wish that I
Didn't have to play the good son
Waste years in school
Just so Pop would think I'm smart

KEI:
I wish that I
Didn't have to play the mother
Though it would tear Papa apart

KEI & SAMMY:
I've got to make a brand new start

ALL:
Wishes on the wind
Dreams that touch the sky
Our heads are bowed
Our eyes are lifted
Hope is riding high

Wishes on the wind
And though they travel far
Somehow, someday
They'll find their way
Right back to us
Right back to us

KEI & SAMMY:
New dreams with new mysteries
Someday I'll unravel them
New roads with new histories
Someday I will travel them
I will travel them

ALL:
Sato-bito wa (sato-bito wa)
Ine ni uta yomu (ine ni uta yomu)
Miyako kana (miyako kana)
Sato-bito wa (wishes on the...)

Wishes on the wind
Dreams that touch the sky
Our heads are bowed
Our eyes are lifted
Hope is riding high

Wishes on the wind
And though they travel far

Somehow, someday
They'll find their way
Right back to us

Right back to us
Right back to us

Wherever we are
