Wish You Were Here Lyrics by Incubus


Incubus Lyrics

Wish You Were Here Lyrics
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.


[Chorus:]
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 ufo's.
I signal them with my lighter
and in this moment i am happy, happy.

[Chorus:]
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.

[Chorus:]
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here.
