about

Wish I Wish Stacy penned the lyrics of Wish I Wish as an emotional and compassionate response to a young friend's hidden journey through the unchosen and chaotic unraveling of her life. As a band we wanted to illuminate the existence of Deliberate Self Harm (DSH), with the hopes that this song can help anyone in this lonely situation by shedding light on this often unrecognized problem. Written in D minor, the saddest key of all, Stacy and Steve's music and chord progressions convey the gravity of the situation. Our hope is that every individual can recognize the beauty inside themselves, and realize that their life is worth living, and that there are other ways of reaching out for help.

lyrics

WISH I WISH

WISH I WISH I WISH I WISH, TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE WISHING FOR

I HAD TO COME
I HAD TO HEAL
I HAD TO KNOW, HOW I FEEL
HAD TO STEAL AWAY FROM YOU AND FORGE MY MIND.
CAN'T YOU SEE, I'M FRIGHTENED TO FIND
WHAT WILL I FIND?
CAN'T YOU SEE I'M SO DEADLY TO MYSELF?

WISH I WISH I WISH I WISH, TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE WISHING FOR

I LET IT OUT ,
I LET IT OUT,
THE RIVER FLOWED, I LET IT FLOW,
I JUST WANT THESE BRITTLE SHARDS TO GO.
SISTER, MY SISTER
SEE THIS GASH, THIS TAINTED GASH
THAT COMES STRAIGHT FROM MY BLACKENED HEART

WISH I WISH I WISH I WISH, TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE WISHING FOR

CAN'T YOU SEE,
I'M WANDERING, LOST
WHAT WILL I FIND? WHAT WILL I FIND
CAN'T YOU SEE I'M A HAZARD TO MYSELF?
OH MOTHER, UNHOLY MOTHER
TAKE THIS HEART, THIS PURPLE HEART
AND NOURISH MY BENT AND TWISTED MIND.

WISH I WISH I WISH I WISH, TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE WISHING FOR
