Off the Charts: Cher Lloyd Performs ‘I Wish’

By  | 

It's time for another edition of Clevver's Off the Charts! Last week we saw an acoustic performance from Emblem3 (who rose to fame after appearing on the U.S. version of The X Factor), but now we're getting a look at former U.K. X Factor finalist Cher Lloyd! Cher broke onto the music scene last summer thanks to her hit single "Want U Back," but she's slowing things down for an acoustic version of her newest single, "I Wish."

In addition to that, she also explained the meaning behind the song before belting out a stripped down version. Cher said, "I think the main thing I was hoping to get across [with the song]…and I feel like I've achieved that already…is just the whole subject of insecurities, I suppose. That's what I set out to do, but in a fun way, not in sort of a serious way."

Check out some of the song's lyrics below:

Baby, I seen the chick you're with, wish that I never did
Freaking perfect and 5 foot ten, just wanna punch her lip
'Cause I know I've been wasting time trying to get your eye
Yeah I know that I been so blind thinking that I'm your type

And now I'm at home, I'm all alone
'Bout to pick up the telephone
Got to call my genie so he knows, yeah

I wish I was tall, I wish I was fast
Wish I could shop with a bag full of cash'
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
I wish I had style, I wish I had flash
I wish I woke up with a butt and a rack'
Cause If I want you, I gotta have that
(Come, come kiss me boy)
