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

And I remember

All those crazy things you said
You left them running through my head
You're always there, you're everywhere
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)

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

All those crazy things you said
You left them running through my head
You're always there, you're everywhere
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)

No, I don't wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I, never wanna let go
Let go oh oh (x2)

(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)

    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.

    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!

    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 =(.
