"Wish You Were" as written by Wayne Hussey, Peter Jozzepi Burns and Mike Percy....
Wish you never went wandering
Declared yourself lost
Wish you never went seeking
All you thought you were not
When you had it all

Used to breathe every moment
Spark the first star
Used to know where you were going
Now you don't like where you are
When you had it all

I wish you were
I wish you were

Used to really care
Before you were aware
You had a natural
Sentimental stare

The look of a hero
Before he tries to be one
The look of a dreamer
Before he tries to interpret
The look of a healer
Before he thinks that he can save the world
I wish you were
Were

I wish you were
I wish you were

Were
Were

But you gave it all away
You say you're doing well
Now everybody else
Is a heaven or a hell
You gave it all away
To a truth that has two sides
Now everybody here is a child of truth or lies
