"Wish I" as written by Jem Griffiths, Ellas Mcdaniel, Bob Gibson and Prentice Herman Jr. Polk....
Baby, you're sailing today
Baby, you're sailing away
Sugar, wish I could go too
But honey you know
I'm happy for you

Wish I, I wish I, I wish I
Wish I was going too

Baby, your ship has come in
Baby, adventures will begin
Sugar, don't you worry â??bout me
Coz honey you know
Want you to be happy

Wish I, I wish I, I wish I
Wish I was going too

But if you find that you don't like it
That the people there aren't inviting
Or that city life is too frightening
Won't you come home
But if you find that you don't like it
That the people there aren't inviting
Or that city life is too frightening
Won't you come home
Please come home

Wish I, I wish I, I wish I
Wish I was going too
Wish I, I wish I, I wish I
Wish I was going too

    General CommentTo me it is about a mum whose child is going off to university. She's really happy for them, but she'll miss them. And if they don't like it they can come back home :)

    General CommentIt's about a couple, where one gets a job offer in the city and has to move there where as the other one doesn't want to and so they spilt even though they're in love. The singer even tells their lover, if they're unhappy, that they'll be welcomed back home.

    General Commentto me, this sounds like summer and sodas and happy smiles and palm trees... "if you love something, set it free" made into a song really... there are so many times I could be the one singing this song to various people. =P

    General CommentIn a way it could be about the person you're in love with going on holiday but I guess the last verse about frightening city life wouldn't fit with that o.O hmm, I dunno. I guess I agree with the 2nd comment made.

    General CommentMy favourite song off the album. I think everyone has already said what this song is about. Pretty straight forward. Gives you an insight into the type of person she is though - she's not clingy and she just wants the man of her dreams to be happy. What an excellent girlfriend to have...
