Wish List

I have loved this song ever since I heard it. I hear this song at the maximum volume with me singing at the top of my voice. Very good music and beautiful lyrics. One of my favorite songs by Pearl Jam. Somewhere I find the lyrics contradictory and they make me think. A song that I can relate myself to, any day, anytime.. A song that describes me many times...

I wish I was a neutron bomb for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The Christmas tree I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence I wish I was the grounds
For fifty million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a Camaro's hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb 'to trust' and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish...
I wish...

- Pearl Jam
