DMX - I Wish Lyrics




[Chorus:]
I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

[Verse 1:]
I wish upon a star, wish upon the night.
I wish that everything that happens in the dark, comes to the light.
I wish upon the days, wish upon the dream.
I wish that everybody only said, what they mean.
I wish I could have caught you, before you fell.
I wish nobody had to go to hell.
I wish Adam wouldn't have listened to Eve, when he bit the apple.
I wish the Ku Klux Klan didn't own Snapple.
I wish that nobody had to ever know the pain, that comes with the mental rain.
I wish that no parent ever have to bury a child.
I wish you wouldn't hurry to get wild.
I wish for so many things, in so little time.
I wish all this wishes weren't mine.
But all I can do, is wish and hope it comes true.
Pray to God and hope it comes true!
Have Faith!

[Chorus:]
I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

[Verse 2:]
(I feel you X. Let me tell you what I wish for)
I'm wishin' there was no hunger or starvation.
That God'll take back the nation from Lord's satin
I wish I never popped pills, that I robbed from my grandpap, dyin' in a hospital.
I wish I didn't lust more, I wish I could trust the Lord for a month or more.
I wish I could physically touch or see Jesus in the flesh leavin' nothin' left to stress
I'm wishin' we were focused on the hopeless, broke n', strugglin' mothers who are dope sick
I'm wishin' New Orleans hadn't looked like an over flooded pool, with no chlorine
I'm wishin' Bill Clinton would return and I don't care, let him get his nuts sucked through the whole term
I wish I wasn't so selfish, I wish I ain't chase this cake, like I don't know what wealth is

[Chorus:]
I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

[Bridge:]
And the hours, and the minutes, and the seconds
Are just as important, take, nothin' for granted
And try to hold on, to LOVE, cause now I,

[Chorus: x2]
I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.

I wish I could touch you, I wish I could see you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
I wish I could be real, I wish I could meet you.
I wish you could talk to me, cause now I wanna listen.
Listen, listen, listen, listen.

    Are you still alive? Is there anybody out there?

  15. Jackie Godden

    Its a great song

  16. Copperti Quickcopper

    That comment about "Lord" satan and the stuff about Bill Clinton completely ruined this song.

    Dangerous Brain TV

    I wish you would listen again. You may actually hear the meaning behind what he was saying. I think you missed the point, bro.

    Joli C

    I agree with dangerous brain ⬆️once you know the extent of the corruption, that the two party system is a set up, once you know our nation has been ran by "Lord" Satan from the get go, and that every president has been blood related since the get go except like 3 , you can understand the lyric in how it is meant.. but ony those willing to pull the veil back, admit their prior beliefs were lies and get uncomfortable, will ever get that.

  17. Precise

    I wish everyone would drop the guns stop with all the hate and start to love one another. Light up the darkness.

    TestTheSpirits IfTheyAreOfYAH

  19. DMAC 1019

    LOVE THIS......THE COMBO OF ARTISTS N RHYTHM R SICK....

  20. MyDickiebird

    Great song,but I disagree with some of the lyrics,like the idea that all of life's problems can be traced back to a talking snake..apart from that I have no problem with it.

  21. niko lugo

    this is so deep

  22. MixedFitnessArtist

    I wish DMX would come train with us and get his ass back in shape.

  29. Risto Kuittinen

    DMX's verse is one of the best in hip hop, ever

    This song should have been put out as a single and have gotten more exposure because this is a one of his best and I found this byaccident and wish many others could get the chance to listen.

    I wish this song ended up on an album. It's a shame each time X creates a awesome track (Lord Give Me A Sign, Last Hope), he's on hard times and the song doesn't get its proper due. Looking forward to Undisputed!

  41. Jose Otero

    i Wish for the world to stand still and all hold hands and just look up in the sky just for a moment and really see how we can all connect as one for the better a world with no hate a world where we can just walk out the door and say hi to our next door neighbors with out worrying about what that person is capable of doing if we use our minds and strength we can make this world a better place .... just saying.. what if the world was at peace...

  42. eshizz89

  66. yoyoyo

    @kkdb22 Your absolutely right, this is so much trash out it is pathetic. I can barely stand most rappers in tha industry today. Seems everyone is turning to gay ass hip hop pop

  67. Piano Music

    music made by a living ledgend

  68. kkdb22

    The reason Hip-Hop sucks so much now is all because of us, because when the industry was putting out bullshit artists and music we fuckin accepted that shit, and now we are paying the price for it, just imagine what hip-hop would be right now if MOST people didn't go out and buy that bullshit rap/pop albums, because the industry is all about MONEY that's all they want they could care less about the message inside the music.

  69. Chillmatic

    This music is better than eminem not afired
    but people do not know that there is a cool music
    DMX 4EVER

  70. Mike Bradley

    I wish nobody had to go to hell...

  78. Buddha Andrade

    "I wish 4 some things and so little time... " - X speaks 4 the heart.

  79. George Bondarov

    I wish ..

  80. Made Strange

    I wish X wasn't a cruel SOB!

  81. Pro-Lif-ik

    @bravepride I feel that too and I don't condone what they did, especially Vick, but at the same time I think it's hypocritical to condemn them. I mean, I eat meat so I'd be a hypocrite too for judging anybody. But if you seen what they do in those mass slaughterhouses, you'd rather be one of Vick's or X's dogs than one of those animals any day most likely. And they have the same capacity to feel pain as a dog, only difference is we don't keep them as pets, which is complete hypocricy to me.

  82. Pro-Lif-ik

    @bravepride he got charged with animal cruelty, not sure if it was fighting or not. But I know the dogs were supposedly starving, and they found some buried on his property supposedly. According to X if I remember right he was on tour or something, paid somebody to feed em and they didn't do it. Can't remember the details, but it happened around the same time as the Vick shit I think. But what I'm saying is compare that to what say KFC does to chickens legally, THAT'S animal cruelty for real.

  83. Bagpipe13

    @stolzeKC well said

  84. Bagpipe13

    it's on.

  85. knightboy1012
