Music A To Z: W Is For...

W is for... Wish You Were Here by Incubus and We No Speak Americano by Yolanda be Cool and DCUP.

This song plays whenever my sister calls me. It is also the song I play the moment I realize I can roll down all four windows in my car because it is summer.

Wish You Were Here

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.

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.

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.

I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here.

The first time I ever heard this song was in Switzerland on mine and Erin's epic European vacation in 2010. It reminds me of sitting in this random bar with the people that we met on our trip, getting drunk and Erin being pulled into Lake Lucerne.

We No Speak Americano

Comme te po’

Comme te po’

Comme te po’ capì chi te vò bene
si tu le parle ‘mmiezzo americano?
Quando se fa l’ammore sotto ‘a luna
come te vene ‘capa e di: “I love you!?”

Pa pa l’ americano
Pa pa l’ americano
Pa pa l’ americano

fa l’ americano!

Pa pa l’ americano
Fa fa l’ americano

whïsky soda e rockenroll
whïsky soda e rockenroll
whïsky soda e rockenroll…
