Story

The short story of this version of 'If I could have One Wish' is we met a beautiful body-artist named Eva Rinaldi who was trying to body paint for a worthy cause. 

 

A campaign was being built in the hope that Eva could meet and paint Oprah Winfrey for charity, and she asked Kat and I to try and create something to support her quest, to be used in less than 48 hours time, when Kat would perform it (wandering minstrel style), for film footage to support her campaign.

 

As time was of the essence we decided to utilise an existing melody and pen new lyrics to suit Eva's brief. (If it interests you, the original version of this song is above.)

Lyrics

INTRO

If I could have one wish

What I’d wish for is this

V1

If I could have one wish

What I’d wish for is this

To have you right here next to us

Down under Sydney Opera House

V2

I’d paint a rainbow Oprah Winfrey

Across you, right here, next to me

And cover every little part of you

In beautiful hues

PC

And if your friends like John Travolta

Are just as keen to let me try

I would paint them picture perfect too

Under Sydney’s summer skies

CH

I feel a masterpiece unfolding, beneath this paintbrush that I’m holding

And I’ll leave each human canvas stained with my name, Eva Rinaldi

Dear Oprah please be brave, ’cause every coin I raise, will make this world a better place

We’d share a perfect piece of time, let the dreamer in me shine

Soul to soul I will thank you, always

V3

Promise you one thing

What I promise is this

To feel my way, every single day

With everything that I do

V4

For every blessed opportunity

Unfolding right here

I’ll serve the human spirit

Like the angel in you

CH

I feel a masterpiece unfolding, beneath this paintbrush that I’m holding

And I’ll leave each human canvas stained with my name, Eva Rinaldi

Dear Oprah please be brave, ’cause every coin I raise, will make this world a better place

We’d share a perfect piece of time, let the dreamer in me shine

Soul to soul I will thank you, always

I feel a masterpiece unfolding, beneath this paintbrush that I’m holding

And I’ll leave each human canvas stained with my name, Eva Rinaldi

Dear Oprah please be brave, ’cause every coin I raise, will make this world a better place

We’d share a perfect piece of time, let the dreamer in me shine

Soul to soul I will thank you, always

OUTRO (repeat INTRO)

If I could have one wish

What I'd wish for is this...
