Track #07: I Wish You Would
This is another catchy tune from record breaking album ‘1989’ and is placed as the 7th track. That is s decent position for this song, because when we reach the 7th track we are very well aquainted with the genre change in the album and we can enjoy the rhythm in ‘I Wish You Would’.
Looking at the lyrics, I don’t believe there’s a lot of deep meaning to it. What it says is what it means. ‘I Wish You Would’ was written by Taylor Swift and Jack Antonoff.
The entire song pretty much speaks about a bad breakup and how the girl is continuously worried about leaving him so suddenly. Looks like an argument broke through the phone and the girl hung up on him and that was it…
I wish you would come back
Wish I’d never hung up the phone like I did
I wish you knew that
I’d never forget you as long as I’d live”
Taylor says the man was always testing the limits with the girl, with regards to what is a mystery.
You always knew how to push my buttons
You give me everything and nothing”
The guy was everything she wanted, but also he was nothing like what she wanted?
Well, those two lines are what was worth looking into, and the others are pretty simple and rhythmic.
Again we get to see the popsynth music in this track, which had been a key feature throughout the album up to now. Synthesizers and electric drums have been used in I Wish You Would to bring out the POP effect of the song.
All-in-all another track I fell in love with on the first listen itself. I know this effect is mutual among many Swifites since I have been reading comments on places where lyrics and audio clips of ‘I Wish You Would’ were placed.
