This song | Reviewer: Bleh | 4/21/09
This song reminds me a lot of someone I lost. Not physically, but metaphorically.
In high school, I met the most gorgeous, kind, caring person I had ever seen. She was always concerned with other people, helped everyone she could, and was always happy to do it. We dated for three years, and I swear she was the one.
But she went through a few rough places in life with me. Her grandma passed, her parents abandoned her, and she was struggling to cope with it. She turned into a really selfish, angry person. And it killed me.
She ended up breaking up with me because I tried to make her stand on her own feet for once. When I listen to this song, I don't wish /she/ was here with me, but I wish her personality would come back. I watched the person I fell in love with die right in front of me, and be replaced by someone else.
I never cry about anything. Ever. I'm not cold hearted, I just accept things as a fact of life. Every time I hear this song, I begin to tear up. Sometimes I do cry, and this is the only thing that can make me cry. It hurts so much to watch someone you loved - love - fall.
love incubus | Reviewer: salim apel | 4/21/09
wen started listenin to the song, t'wuz like sumbody is avin fun n wishes sum friennd wuz with him. Laters it started soundin paradoxical cuz it appears like sumone losta friend in death, break up n is tryin to move on. he convinces himself that he's happy but later realizes that there is a void in the happiness n reverts back to depression yellin wish you wuz here... kinda sombre mood! luv incubus!
Greatness | Reviewer: Elissa | 3/4/09
I believe this entire song is about someone who is truly happy and appreciates life for what it is. And by saying "I wish you were here" they are feeling maybe a sense of lonliness, but more so, they are wishing that the person they care about most could feel the happiness they are living.

everything the song says here i have experienced it literally and i wasnt even familiar with this song at the time... i was on a vacation with my friends to this awesome island.. it was night and we had a bonfire and tent near the shore.. "the sky resembles a backlit canopy with holes punched in it" made me feel so small. and i was happy and wishing "he" was there with me! hehehe..

If you are reading this MGB,
I just want you to know that I'm going through the exact same thing as you are..
when I read your review it was as if I had wrote it myself, as if I had finnaly found that other person that could understand me.
I hope it comforts you in a way that there are other people out there in the world, who feel the same way!
I miss you by Incubus
I miss you by blink 182
are also very nice songs, try them sometime..
Hope you get to see this.
The world's a roller coaster | Reviewer: MGB | 1/21/09
This song, like almost every other song, has a different meaning to everyone. For me, it doesn't remind me of any specific person. But it makes me wonder WHO I will meet later on in my life.
'I dig my toes into the sand
The ocean looks like a thousand diamonds
Strewn across a blue blanket'
Every day, I like to spend time thinking about the people who are currently in my life. And I've come to realize that in 5 years, everyone who I'm associated with now, will no longer mean anything to me. Not because I don't like them, but because they will never know who i really am. After going thorugh some experinces, I've come to realize that they will never mature into someone who can comprehend what life is truly about. Their values aren't morally stable.
I just wish there was somebody out there who understood what I'm going through, and that they would love me for me, and i could spend the rest of my life with them. I wonder if there is such a person out there. I just wish they were here with me now.
'I lay my head onto the sand
The sky resembles a backlit canopy
With holes punched in it
I'm counting UFOs
I signal them with my lighter
And in this moment I am happy...happy'
In this song, the narrator is going through life by himself. I spend a lot of time by myself as well. It feels good to get away from peoples' views on what they think are problems. I feel free when I'm by myself, safe. In the moments that I'm alone, I'm happy... happy.
'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 saying: I wish you were here.'
in this MOMENT, i wish you were HERE... | Reviewer: hazel | 1/28/09
matt, if you're reading this, your story made me tear up. that was beautiful.
I was already crying when i was listening to this, remembering my best friends. it's so bittersweet that you go through life, and yet not having those special people around you just when you're having fun. going from one school to another... piling up a lot of friends who showed you how to enjoy life despite hardships. i love you guys. hope to bump on each of you and we'll have some coffee or vodka, hehe ;P
I wish she was here. | Reviewer: Aaron | 1/26/09
I fell in love the first day I met this girl, and we dated but broke up when we were too far away, didn't talk for 4 months but then I called her because I couldn't be without her.. we talked for 5 hours a day for a month straight and talk for a couple hours a week for the past 2 years.. I get to see her 2 times a year, we are both in school so it is tough.. I never heard this song til I was with her the other day and she said this was her ringtone for when I call.. it fits us.. I want to tell her that I love her but I don't know if she'll love me back, and I can't lose her like that.. so now what I have are our conversations and listening to this song makes me feel better about missing her.. I absolutely love this song..
always... | Reviewer: Bliss | 1/19/09
I am getting wish you were here...tattoed on me on my 21st bday...I lost some special ppl and it makes me realise when the special things in your life happen those people gone already or that will go, wont be there to help you celebrate those things...so to me its means I will always wish you were here to be with me and celebrate.
i wish you were here! | Reviewer: Mallory | 1/8/09
i love this song.
i havent had a fav song in years, and i realized it one day.
it was sort of a theme song when i went back to racine, Wi for the summer. its the neatest place in the world to me, but now its sort of a. i wish you were here to my best friend. i just moved away from her. really the song for me should be, i wish i was there, but.
this is my favorite song, and probably always will be. the lyrics are amazing, the meaning is great, and the actual music is off the wall.
Means a lot to me | Reviewer: Mike | 12/12/08
Its some months since i broke up with my girlfriend, we were together for about 6 years. This song reminded me of how much I had grown with her... and even if i became a better man, sometimes i stop feeling everything. This might sound cliche-y but food doesnt taste the same, memories become painful and life without her is horrible... When I feel like something good is going on my life i always remember this song and i just say "I wish you were here", to share this moment together. Sorry for the story just had to get it out.
free spirit | Reviewer: Leslie | 12/12/08
This song reminds me of a freedom I had once long ago. I let a certain person into my life I love them a lot and I realize that without them I would be missing them. But this song reminds me of a happier carefree time. Younger. When you had time to lie down and look at the stars and miss someone.
Beautiful<3 | Reviewer: j.bee | 11/11/08
This song is so meaningful to me because it reminds me of my boyfriend. We recently broke up. I know he still Loves me because he says he does but I guess things just need to be straightened out with his life first so that ours could be a lot better. He lives in San Francisco and I live in L.A. It gets really hard without him, so to him, I dedicate this<3
hmm.. | Reviewer: mandy | 11/9/08
Everyones stories are kinda depressing, so I thought I would add one.
My boyfriend just joined the Navy. His base is 9 hours away from me. I have seen him once in four monthes. When he ends up getting deployed his deployment is 10 months at a time. Its tough, but I do love this song ;)
I wish he was here | Reviewer: Ska | 10/30/08
My boyfriend and I have been together for awhile, he lives in NC and I in OH. I went to visit him last weekend and to see his band play. They covered this song and it was amazing. I loved seeing him play. Leaving to come back home was the hardest experience and we're both having a really hard time dealing with it, still.
I wish he was here.
