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]
And I remember 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. :)

    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 =(.

    Wish you were here. That's what everyone who are bein left by their love ones wants. Because whatever they do to forget everything they had in their relationship when where they are, instead, its coming all back in her memory. In my case, I still wish I am with him but situation make us apart that's why whenever we want to be together but its not that easy to be, to do. But somehow, I still want him to know that I can't get him off of my mind, of course especially in my life. I just hope that he's fine now with his life. Merry christmas leoj airstone. You still make my life worthliving- I'm willing to risk it all. And to wait even how long am I gonna take to wait you. Just for you!
