Track 4: “Wish That I Was”


And… we have arrived at the title track.


“Wish That I Was”

Sometimes, we write what we have experienced. Sometimes, we write what we have observed. And sometimes, there is no difference.

This was the first song that we recorded, way back in February, and I feel like it acted as a sonic compass for the entire project. Josh and I spent a long time talking about the “sound” that we were aiming for on the EP – what the instrumentation would be, what would unify all of the tracks, what the feel should be.

When the second chorus hits, you’ll hear it.

This track has been deleted – you should buy the EP to hear it!

    Love the mood of this song (although it made me cry a bit but that’s because the lyrics are beautiful and heartbreaking).
    “I’d rather be alone than wish that I was”… Annie you’re a genius.

    What a terrific song! I don’t recall hearing this one before and it was incredible. We ordered our copy of the EP last night. Can’t wait to hear the whole thing!

    Guess what track is playing in my cd player as I read this post!?!

    EP = LOVE. It’s like a long lost friend here in my apartment with me while I’m drinking a glass of wine and making dinner.

    Fabulous talent. Amazing EP. So proud – even though I’ve never met you…you should be proud as well!

    I LOVE the chord progressions in this song, and the piano intro is…haunting. Great work!

    annie, i think this is my favorite so far. i can’t say exactly why, but it just hits me…obviously all of your songs are great, but this is perfection as far as i’m concerned.

    love it and hope you’re basking in your moment! because this one’s definitely yours. :)
