“Wish You Were Here”
Incubus

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

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 backlit canopy with holes punched in it
I’m counting UFOs, I signal them with my lighter
and in this moment I am happy

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

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

…Far as I’m concerned, the best song Incubus ever did. Listen once and you can hear the wistfulness and almost smell the ocean air. Mikey, I wish you were here.
