Song: Wish I Was Your Lover
Lyricist: Yacoub Rami, Birgisson Arnthor, Enrique Iglesias
Singer: Enrique Iglesias
The year is 2007. We are a bunch of friends hanging out in our small town in Punjab, India. One of my friends introduces me to Enrique Iglesias and his mesmerising his voice. That’s when I caught the viral fever of Enrique’s music.
Today’s musical recommendation is about one of my most favourite songs of Enrique Iglesias. Wish I Was Your Lover.
While listening to this song for the first time 13 years back, I knew that I am going to play it on loop for a long time. The melodious voice of Enrique, the way he treats the lyrics of his songs, and the lyrics itself – I had never thought that an English song can speak of my heart with such accuracy.
“I tried to tell you how I feel,
I tried to tell you but I’m weak…
Words don’t come easily,
When you get close I shiver…
I watch you when you smile,
I watch you when you cry,
And I still don’t understand,
I can’t find a way to tell you…
I wish I was your lover, I wish that you were mine…
Baby, I’ve got this feeling, that I just can’t hide.”
That’s when I knew what I feel in my heart about love is not restricted just to me.
I feel, Wish I Was Your Lover by Enrique is for every teenager or even an adult who can’t gather the courage to talk to his crush. There are high chances, you may have already heard it. But if you haven’t, go for it!
