I attended my 35-years high school reunion for the first time. People asked me why it took me so long to go to one. I told them, healing. High school was a struggle for me on all fronts. But this song was written about my experience of attending the reunion and meeting an old friend I had not seen for twenty-five years. The experience made me realize that most of us have someone in our lives that represents the path not taken. I discovered at that reunion that I was that person for one man. When I wrote the song, I had no idea it would have such a great groove until I played it with the band. Then I knew it was a winner and would be the first song on my CD.


Wish You Well (What Didn’'t Happen)

1)We were only just eighteen,
We laughed, we joked, we made a scene,
We danced down empty halls,
We couldn’t see our crystal ball.
We graduated, we danced all night,
You held me close, you held me tight,
But when we parted we were still just friends,
We went to college it was the end.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is short and so let it go, let it go. (x2)…

2)I saw you again the other day,
I met your wife, she’s very nice,
But when I looked into your eyes,
I knew you were in love with what never was.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is short and so let it go, let it go…. (x2)

Bridge: What didn’'t happen, let it be, we can’'t re-write history….

3)You’'ve got your boys, you’ve got your wife,
Enjoy the love that’s in your life,
You didn’'t let me get away,
Live life full every day.

Chorus: I wish you well, only time can tell,
Life is and short so let it go, let it go. (x2)

If you listened to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, and every rocking song you could get your hands on from 1966 to now and stirred it up with a Fender Strat and sang it from a woman's perspective, you would have Julie Clark Shubert "From the Inside Out." When Julie turned 50, her husband gave her a Fender Strat, the stars aligned and her natural gift appeared, the rest is kinda a blur. ... more
