SANANDA MAITREYA [TERENCE TRENT D’ARBY] – Wishing Well / Sign Your Name

Sananda Maitreya, who started his career with the stage name Terence Trent D’Arby, is an American singer and songwriter who came to fame with his debut studio album, Introducing the Hardline According to Terence Trent D’Arby (1987). The album included the singles “If You Let Me Stay”, “Sign Your Name”, “Dance Little Sister”, and the number one hit “Wishing Well”.

D’Arby legally changed his name to Sananda Maitreya on October 4, 2001, explaining “Terence Trent D’Arby was dead… he watched his suffering as he died a noble death. After intense pain I meditated for a new spirit, a new will, a new identity”. Maitreya has said that his name change resulted from a series of dreams he had in 1995. Though the name does not have any religious significance, Maitreya explained that he understood it to mean “rebirth” in Sanskrit. Sānanda (आनन्द) means ‘possessed of happiness’, and maitreya (मैत्रेय) means ‘friendly, kind, loving, benevolent’.


WISHING WELL

Kissing like a bandit stealing time
Underneath the sycamore tree
Cupid by the hour sends valentines
To my sweet lover and me

Slowly but surely
Your appetite is more than I knew
Sweetly, softly
I’m falling in love with you

Wish me love a wishing well, to kiss and tell
A wishing well of butterfly tears
Wish me love a wishing well, to kiss and tell
A wishing well of crocodile cheers, sing

Hugging like a monkey see, monkey do
Right beside a riverboat gambler
Erotic images float through my head
Say I wanna be (I wanna be your midnight rambler) your midnight rambler

Quickly but quickly
The blood races through my veins
Quickly, loudly
I wanna hear those sugar bells ring

Wish me love a wishing well to kiss and tell
A wishing well of butterfly tears
Wish me love a wishing well to kiss and tell
A wishing well of crocodile cheers, get up

On the beat now
C’mon

Wish me love a wishing well to kiss and tell
A wishing well of butterfly tears, come on
Wish me love a wishing well to kiss and tell
A wishing well of crocodile cheers

I feel like going on
I feel like going on (Wish me love a wishing well to kiss and tell)
Come on, come on
Erotic images float through my head
Your midnight rambler, baby

Dig it
For you anywhere
I don’t know I don’t care
But all I know is I gotta
Gotta be your midnight rambler, baby

SIGN YOUR NAME

Fortunately you have got
Someone who relies on you
We started out as friends
But the thought of you just caves me in
The symptoms are so deep
It is much too late to turn away
We started out as friends

Sign you name across my heart
I want you to be my baby
Sign your name across my heart
I want you to be my lady

Time I’m sure will bring
Disappointments in so many things
It seems to be the way
When your gambling cards on love you play
I’d rather be in Hell
With you baby than in cool Heaven
It seems to be the way

Sign you name across my heart
I want you to be my baby
Sign your name across my heart
I want you to be my lady

Birds never look into the sun
Before the day is done
Oh the light shines brighter
On a peaceful day
Stranger blue leave us alone
We don’t want to deal with you
We’ll shed our stains showering
In the room that makes the rain

All alone with you
Makes the butterflies in me arise
Slowly we make love
And the earth rotates
To our dictates
Slowly we make love

Hey
Sign your name across my heart (sign your name)
I want you to be my baby (be my baby)
Sign your name across my heart
I want you to be my lady
(Sign your name, sign your name)

Sign you name across my heart
I want you to be my baby
Sign your name across my heart
I want you to be my lady

Sign you name across my heart
I want you to be my baby
Sign your name across my heart
