"I Wish" as written by and Graham Coxon....
I wish the music would play by itself,
Shredded fingers...no ideas

I wish this rainy day could be the last,
Could the world end?...what a God send

I wish I could stop wishing you were here,
But I don't want to...cus I'd still want you

I wish I didn't feel so flippin mad,
Don't want to scare you...just want to love you

I wish my life could last a thousand years,
Then I'd be clever...and build a heaven

I wish I could bring Nick Drake back to life,
He'd understand...hold my hand

I wish a constant stream of happy shit,
Live forever...in world of leather

I wish the rain would just leave me alone,
I can't wear that...stupid rain hat

I wish I was in California
Pernod perfume...in the Danube

I wish the thing of love meant just one thing

    General CommentI love the way it builds, it hardly lets you breath - pure genius - when that distorted guitar tone comes in - amazing!
