Avril Lavigne – Wish You Were Here lyrics

[Verse 1]
I can be tough, I can be strong,
But with you, it's not like that at all.
There's a girl that gives a shit
Behind this wall you just walk through it,

[Pre-Chorus]
And I remember all those crazy things you said,
You left them running through my head.
You're always there, you're everywhere,
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did,
Didn't think about it, just went with it.
You're always there, you're everywhere,
But right now I wish you were here.

[Chorus]
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you here, here, here,
I wish you were here.
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you near, near, near,
I wish you were here.

[Verse 2]
I love, the way you are,
It's who I am, don't have to try hard.
We always say, say it like it is,
And the truth, is that I really miss...

[Pre-Chorus]
All those crazy things you said (things you said),
You left them running through my head (through my head).
You're always there, you're everywhere,
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did (things we did),
Didn't think about it, just went with it (went with it).
You're always there, you're everywhere,
But right now I wish you were here.

[Chorus]
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you here, here, here,
I wish you were here.
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you near, near, near,
I wish you were here.

[Bridge]
No, I don't wanna let go,
I just wanna let you know,
That I, never wanna let go,
Let go, oh, oh
No, I don't wanna let go,
I just wanna let you know,
That I, never wanna let go,
Let go, let go, let go, let go, let go, let go...

[Chorus]
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you here, here, here,
I wish you were here (I wish you were here!)
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you near, near, near,
I wish you were here.
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you here, here, here,
I wish you were here.
Damn! Damn! Damn!
What I'd do to have you near, near, near,
I wish you were here.

    It's a wonderful song, it reminds me of my old boyfriend. I will always remember him even if he ditched me infront of the entire school. I sang this song on assembly, he cried. And asked me out, for a second chance. I said no. He cried more and said "i love you", then I cried and said, "we could still be friends. " but he didn't accept that and cut himself. I felt guilty about it. He's now in the hospital, he tried eating this pill once to die. : '(

    The meaning of this song is mainly about the person you loved that you can't be with. It's either that person walked away of already gone. I really appreciate this song because every word fits in what in feeling right now. I just lost my close sister last christmas and just by thinking the fact that.
    I cannot see her anymore. It really makes me cry. I wish she's still here with our family. :( I always remember all those crazy things she said and all the things that we did, we didn't think about it and just went with it. I really miss her and I am still missing her. Even though I tried so hard but I really don't wanna let go. I really miss my ate jhen! :((kung nasan ka man ngayong ate. "i wish you were here" - dave.

    This song means regretting the fact that you set the one that you loved and love the most, free.
    You let him/her get away, without having a second thought, and now, you've just realized what you have done and that it's practically too late to do anything now.
    And now, you miss him/her badly that it drives you mad and you probably think that you're an idiot for not stopping them.
    You'll start reflecting and remembering the things that you have done with him/her. It will continue to haunt you until you get over them.
    And for the part where it says "i won't let go", it doesn't mean the exact thing the line said. It means that he/she will always remain in your heart, no matter how long the time has past.
    That's the meaning of the song for me. It's good to have you back, avril. I love your songs and I love you. This new album of yours will sure inspire lots and lots of people. :)

    I think that this song was for her special person that died. When she says he's everywhere, she means that she can feel him, and she wants him back. She's crying because she wants him back, but knows she will never get him back. Now she's looking back and realizing what she has really lost. She's a lot like me, but I'm a little toned down. I love this song.

    I just love the melody of the song! Go ms. A. L! I love since then. I love her uniqueness and the way she sung a song. I love the beat of the drums! I always close my eyes everytime I listen unto it. The song was all about a person who misses her lover. And it's damn pretty when you missed sum1 but hus not there. Damn, damn, damn what I'd do to have you here! I♥ you avril! You are my skater girl!
