"I Wish" as written by Richard Preston Butler, Pierre Medor and Dwayne Nesmith....
Corna' Boys
This feel real good right here man
It's a good look
I ain't mad at you (Omarion)
Sometimes I wish I didn't know you but I'm glad I do (tug)
(I, I) I ain't mad at you
Sometimes I wish I didn't know you but I'm glad I do (I, I)
(I, I) I ain't mad at you
Sometimes I wish I didn't know you but I'm glad I do

I shoulda
Known I (Known I'd)
Fall in love with your game
Guess I had it coming
Now I
Can't escape what I'm dealing inside
So ain't no use a running
But (oh no)
I don't know if you feeling me the same
You gotta tell me something (gotta tell me something)
Cause I don't want to be in love with a girl
Who's way too busy fronting

I want to go back to when
To when you were just a friend
No complications
Not my heart racing
When I see you baby
But it ain't the same cause now
I can't resist your smile
You got me buggin'
I'm caught off your loving
And I know it's crazy but

(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
Like I do
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
Like I do

Baby
Sometimes
I try to act like it ain't what it is
Girl I gotta face it
Cause I (Cause I value all of the time that we share)
And I don't want to waste it (I won't even waste it babe)
You gotta hold on me that I can't shake
So I won't even fight it (No I won't even fight it)
Girl you keep a smile on my face
And I be so excited

I want to go back to when
To when you were just a friend
No complications
Not my heart racing
When I see you baby
But it ain't the same cause now
I can't resist your smile
You got me buggin'
I'm caught off your loving
And I know it's crazy but

(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (Love you)
Like I do (Like I do)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (Oh oh ooh)
(Love you) Like I do

If Loving you is wrong then I ain't right
Cause I can't leave you alone
Baby girl you have made my heart your home
It's forever you and me
So never leave
I said if loving you is wrong then I ain't right
Cause I can't leave you alone
Baby girl you have made my heart your home
It's forever you and me
So never leave
Baby yeah

(I, I) I wish I didn't love you
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love yea)
Like I do (like I do)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (I wish I didn't love)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (Oh!)
(I, I) I wish I didn't love you (Oh ioh ooh)
Like I do

(I, I) I ain't mad at you
Sometimes I wish I didn't know you (I, I) but I'm glad I do
(I, I) I ain't mad at you
Sometimes I wish I didn't love you but I'm glad I do
Ooh no no oh oh oh

    I've got this CD. I'm not really much of a fan of R&B songs nowadays, since most of them are pretty formulaic. I think this is the best song on it. Omarion's voice is very nice! It's very catchy...especially the "I, I..I wish I didn't love you. Like I dooo!" It makes me sing along with it everytime.

    My OpinionMy favorite Omarion song ever. I love this song, listening to it now.

    I think it's about falling in love with a friend you wish you weren't in love with. You wish you could love them like a friend but if feels like that will never happen because they made you fall for them without knowing they did.
