“The ballad is the sixth track off of Out Of The Wasteland, boasts our favorite elements that make up the band’s trademark sound: soothing lyrics, steady acoustic guitar, stunning string accompaniment and, of course, the gravelly perfection that is Jason Wade’s voice.
If “Wish” sounds reminiscent of early era Lifehouse to you [...] it’s because the acoustic tune is a straggler from the band’s early days that has just now found its place.
“Wish’ is a vintage tune that was salvaged from 2002,” Jason Wade told PopCrush [...]. “For years I’ve wanted to release it, but never felt like it fit a record until this one. Jim Cox’s string arrangement is perfection, and I feel like the song has finally found a home.”” – Popcrush
