Phantom Of The Opera – Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again lyrics

Christine: Little Lotte thought of everything and nothing.
Her father promised her that he would send her the Angel of Music.
Her father promised her...
Her father promised her...

You were once my one companion,
You were all that mattered.
You were once a friend and father,
Then my world was shattered

Wishing you were somehow here again,
Wishing you were somehow near.
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed,
Somehow you would be here.

Wishing I could hear your voice again,
Knowing that I never would.
Dreaming of you won't help me to do,
All that you dreamed I could!

Passing bells and sculpted angels,
Cold and monumental.
Seem, for you, the wrong companions,
You were warm and gentle

Too many years fighting back tears,
Why can't the past just die

Wishing you were somehow here again,
Knowing we must say goodbye!
Try to forgive, teach me to live!
Give me the strength to try!

No more memories, no more silent tears!
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say goodbye
Help me say goodbye...

    Christine is singing this song about her late father, the only family she ever knew. She loved him dearly and the memory of him and his death still haunts her many years later. In this song she is expressing how she still misses him, but wants it to not go with her everywhere anymore. Near to the end of the song she says that she wants help to say good bye. She wants to get over his death and move forward, not go on wasting her life over his death, because she knows that isn't what he wanted for her.
