Wish you were here Lyrics - Incubus



Review The Song (92)


I dig my toes into the sand
The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds
Strewn across a blue blanket
I lean against the wind
Pretend that I am weightless
And in this moment I am happy...happy

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

I lay my head onto the sand
The sky resembles a back lit canopy
With holes punched in it
I'm counting UFOs
I signal them with my lighter
And in this moment I am happy...happy

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
Wish you were here

The world's a roller coaster
And I am not strapped in
Maybe I should hold with care
But my hands are busy in the air saying:

I wish you were here
I wish you were

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
Wish you were here

My Beautiful Moments | Reviewer: Iwan Sevana | 10/16/12

As I can say about this song, it brings much deeper means for my life since last year when I first heard this song on October 2011. The beauty of this song are forever. The best moments in my life was when I were in the beautiful morning view with the blue sky and sunshine while listening this song and I hope someone that I miss are beside me in that morning. This song also reminds me many things that we do in the forest with the clear river and have a little smoke. Oh damn I miss that moments! Thanks for Incubus Band for giving me a strength to continue living this life and many inspiration.

Meanings | Reviewer: David | 2/20/12

This song has been many things to me, a breakup song, a song to grieve with, and the list goes on and on. When I was with my ex we loved to listen to Incubus. When I went on vacation with my family I would think of her and I would wish she were by my side. Whenever she broke off the relationship I would listen to this, and " I Miss You" on repeat. As of right now, I really wish this girl I think I may love were here with me. When my mom passed away a few years ago, I listened to this song nearly everyday for a few months straight. This song really means a lot me in many ways. Incubus really is a great group, and I really hope they know just how much their fans appreciate their music.

memories of Halo | Reviewer: Punji 73 | 12/18/11

This song has always reminded me of the video game 'Halo', the action packed music at the start, like the action pack entry into Halo on the game, the dreamy music just before the vocals, just like the part in the game where the Chief regains consciousness after crash landing on Halo, and the fact that he wishes we were all there with him to enjoy the splendour of Halo and to kick some Covenant butt too!! In fact with the 10th anniversary of Halo Combat Evolved upon us, and the release of the Halo Anniversary edition, i've been inspired to make a video clip to this song using clips from the game!

Hi Lauren! | Reviewer: Stefie | 12/12/11

Write it all down, I'm sorry about your mom, but wish you were here is about you too, I'm an engineering student and even so it seems people don't care about art it is every where and very profitable in any economy no society can live without it starting with every advertisement every song every building, don't worry too much about your mom, go out and dosomething great. Build up your skills, your time to shine will come because opportunities only work out for the ready, readiness IS all.
Btw yes, Justin can go do just that, and skinny jeans don't even work on a bunch of girls let alone guys... But I know one that looks pretty good in them only one

I dig my toes into the sand | Reviewer: Haley | 12/4/11

this song means sooo much to me, the guy i like plays this all the time so when ever i miss him i play this song.... Unfortunately one of my ex- bestfriends wanted to mess with me a bit and take him away from me. Now whenever I hear this song i get sad because i do wish he was here, i miss how things used to be before she had to butt into it. and i hope that one day things go back to the way they used to be </3

I'm sorry brenda | Reviewer: Lauren | 10/29/11

It must be hard for you to have lost him. And i can't say my mom would be sad for my death. I'm 11 and i almost commited suicide 2 or 3 weeks ago. And my mom doesn't know. I decided to live after falling apart in front of my boyfriend. But i tried killing myself because my mom gave me one of her many life threats. It's nothing new, but this one was because i decided my mom deserved to know i was emo and julliard was where my heart was set. She's against me in all ways now. And i don't cut myself. An emo does that when it's part of their religion. I've been emo for 3 years now, and i was building a better bond to tell my family. But i'm an official outcast. There hasn't been an artist or musically inclined person in the family in about 30 years. And my great-grandpa was treated very similar apparently. But he's a respected artist in my city. Except by my family. I use him as a rolemodel. He got far in life. 82 years of pure art. I get a majority of my intellectual gifts from him. Most of my talents came from him anyways. And i want to live to be a critic, or reviewer as an adult. Play trumpet and draw on the side. Musicians aren't a priority in this current economy. And music these days, well lets just say justin beiber should go lay down somewhere and die. I'm not the common preteen for many reasons. Musically, intellectually, artisticly, and sensibly. A guy who wears skinny jeans should give them to his sister. Some guys can pull em' off, but not many. Anyways, i listen to alternative music and my clothes are sensible. And my mom considers me a rebel. She should be glad with what she's got. But hey, i'm an outcast. What do i know?

Well i know not to get pregnant at 16 like my mother, but otherwise i don't know things i should apparently.

No mother should ever have to lose a son | Reviewer: Brenda | 10/2/11

My 19 year old son, Paolo, aka DJ Downbeat, was a serious Incubus fan. He loved the ocean, making music, the Cosmos, marine biology, surfing, his guitar and his girl, Alina. He was killed by a random gunshot 2 years ago. This energy of this song goes right through me and I feel once again he is inside me, safe, never to be harmed again.

LOVEEEEE THIS SONG | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/20/11

Heard this yrs ago as a younger adult...18-21yrs old. It just hit aspecial place n still does til this day!!!! First was a "break up" song 2me after.finally leaving abusive relationship (thigh a bit sick I'd "wish he was here" though I sadly did at the time). As I've grown up (now 29} its a happy song n a sense--t resenf the gd times w past love, friends who've died or killed self WAY TOO YOUNG(25@oldest).....its about stopping n "smelling the roses" n this crazy n MESSED up world n wanting others u love 2 feel enlightened themselves. We don't have too msmy moments n life like that LOVR THIS SONG, IT'LL NEVER GET OLD!

fantastic song | Reviewer: Jazz | 7/4/11

To be truly honest, I am with 'shadow' on this. I'm sorry for those whom this song represents a moment of grief, but this song makes me really happy. I believe this song has nothing to do with someone dying or death. I just think he took a trip to some paradise beach, he lit up a joint and he is high as hell enjoying the view and almost hallucinating it (Remember he talks about signaling UFOs with a lighter).. And he wishes someone whom he loves (could be a brother, friend or a lover) to be there with him appreciating the sea and the nightlife the way he is enjoying it, happily High! :)

irony | Reviewer: jay | 6/19/11

Uno its funny, all my life I've been a dooche with girls and the few times I try and change I end up getting furked over!
This song made me realise what I needed to be there uno I mean what I truly needed here.
Simplistic and free spirited is what's key here and this tune is always a nice way to remember someone or something that's missing, jay

love bali | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/4/11

im living by the sea and whenever i look at the sandy beach blue sky.. and the sea.. and listen to the waves.. this song in my head. though my husband is half world apart and i miss him so much, cant resist to smile and remember good times we had and feeling happy
