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. : '(

    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. :)

    It matches what I feel right now. I really wish to have him here with me, I miss him so bad that I'd do anything I can to have him with me now. I wanna spend the new year with him. Theres a feeling inside me, like a great urge that makes me want him to be with me, but alas, I'm no superhuman to make him be with me now =(.

    Wish you were here for me tells about a girl who misses a guy, she always remembers those moments when they're together, I'm so much related with this song for the content of the song is really the same like what I wanna tell to that guy whom I loved before, for what I feel. That's all thank you, and as of now, this song is my top favorite for this year.

    Uhm. Man! This song makes me feel like a woman, makes me all emotional and stuff, makes me want to run in the middle of the night and go find her, lol, makes me wanna cry, makes me laugh, makes me reminisce about the bad, good and the great times. I remember this one time mistakening her with some other person, man I was so friking happy, only to find out it wasn't her. Only then it hit that I miss her so bad. Okay enough sobbing now, its a really beautiful song, anyone can relate to it, it makes you realise how much you miss a particular person and you just weren't aware of it. Like it a lot 5 stars 4 it.
