Poe – If You Were Here lyrics

If you were here
I know that you would
Truly be amazed
At what's become of what you made
If you were here
You would know how I treasured every day
How every single word you spoke
Echo's in me like a memory of hope

When you were here
You could not feel the value that I placed
On every look that crossed your face
When you were here
I did not know just how I had embraced
All that you hid behind your face
Could not hide from me
'Cause it hid in me too

Hello tiger, it's great fun, talking with you. like this--in fact I'm going to do it more often

Now that I'm here I hear you and wonder if maybe you can hear yourself
Ringing in me now that your somewhere else.

I miss you a lot

'Cause I hear your strange music gentle and true

But I'm so proud of everything you do there

Singing inside me with the best parts of you

Next time I see you you'll proudly sing it back to me

Now that I'm here

I hope somewhere you here them too

Now that I'm here

I love you...

It's okay you can go now
