MINI VIVA | I Wish

LYRICS:

I was one with you, breathing
And was close to you, in your sleep
And I don't deny, waiting
For the little light from you

And I wish that I had tried
Mmm baby I now wished that us away
Oh no, if I wish that hard enough
Would love come home, home again
And I wish that I had tried
Mmm baby I now wished that us away
Oh no, if I wish that hard enough
Would love come home, home again
And I go oh no
He could be the one
Who hits the light inside my soul
Oh baby, This could be the last of my control

I was watching you, leaving
Didnt know that love cut so deep
How was I to know baby,
All the tears I cry for you

And I wish that I had tried
Mmm baby I now wished that us away
Oh no, if I wish that hard enough
Would love come home, home again
And I wish that I had tried
Mmm baby I now wished that us away
Oh no, if I wish that hard enough
Would love come home, home again
And I go oh no
He could be the one
Who hits the light inside my soul
Oh baby, This could be the last of my control
And I go oh no
He could be the one
Who hits the light inside my soul
Oh baby, This could be the last of my control

Feels like starry eyed
Im alone, alone on a slowly, lonely ride Each time I decide to get off
I drop in rolling, holding tight
Feels like starry eyed
Im alone, alone on a slowly, lonely ride
Each time I decide to get off
I drop in rolling, holding holding

And I wish that I had tried
Mmm baby I now wished that us away
Oh no, if I wish that hard enough
Would love come home, home again
And I go oh no
He could be the one
Who hits the light inside my soul
Oh baby, This could be the last of my control
And I go oh no
He could be the one
Who hits the light inside my soul
Oh baby, This could be the last of my control

I love him I love him

REVIEWS
x Mini Viva's 'Left My Heart In Tokyo' is one of 2009's signature pop tunes and Mini Viva pull it out of the bag again with the wistfully romantic 'I Wish'.
To these ears it's one of the best tunes to have come out of Westerham since 'Call The Shots' and it shares that song's uptempo/downcast discoballad qualities. 'I Wish' also comes equipped with one of the year's most delicate and glittery middle eights. Splendid stuff. Popjustice

x After conquering the charts (not literally) in the UK last September, Mini Viva's Frankie and Britt are back with another shiny shimmering pop serving. (...)
'I Wish' is an eclectic pop song. It doesn't go far from 'Left My Heart In Tokyo' in terms of its quality and sheer brill. It's catchy as Frankie and Britt's queer pop vocals made the song a beautiful thing to hear. The Beat Review

x (...) It looks and sounds like the very essence of great pop distilled into 4 minutes. Everything about it screams of youth, vitality and energy, but at the same time it's wistful and melancholy. (...) bearing all of Xenomania's trademarks; a gorgeous, achingly melodic record with two choruses, and a beautiful middle eight. It has the pop nous of the Pet Shop Boys, the sadness of late-period ABBA, and the air of being a proper Spice Girls type catch-all hit single. (...)
In fact not only is I Wish probably the last great single of the 00s, but Mini Viva may well prove to be the first great pop group of the 10s (pronounce that however you like). They're as exciting as the Sugababes were around the time of One Touch, they have a peerless production and songwriting team behind them, and they will be the torch-bearers of sophisticated pop at least until Girls Aloud return next Autumn. Truly, these are exciting times. Totally Dublin
