1 Example sentence.

I wish you will be mine.
This sentense means 'I want you'. And It may be used to propose.:oops:


2 Example sentence.
It is my favorite song 'Creep' by RadioHead.
It is one portion in the lyrics.

I wish I was special.
This sentense means 'I hope to be special man to you'.

Explain the grammar.
Form = I wish + subject + past tense form
I wish I was a kid.
I wish I was a superman.

We usually use it to talk about hoping.

Clarification...

Min Won, I like your examples from song lyrics. I have one question about your first example. Are you sure it goes I wish you will be mine and not I wish you could be mine? I'm just curious. I wish you could be mine is grammatically correct--but lyricists often break traditional rules of English grammar. :)

I visited the website you mentioned and checked out the lyrics. Sure enough, the lyrics went I wish you will be mine. Song writers occasionally make gammatical errors, don't they. :lol:
