The Get Up Kids – Wish You Were Here lyrics
Would you stay for one night?
If I didn't come home?
The end of a big fight
Doesn't matter anymore
At that point in my midlife
The situation stands
But hours pass like years
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Did I open an old wound?
Is there something I should know?
Is it's all ending so soon
How could we possibly let go?
Comes to a head, this is high noon
The finale we had planned
But hours pass like years
Wish you were here
Say the words so slow
Say it without fear
You won't turn to go
You won't leave me here
And if the past is all we know
My memories are clear
Wish you were here
If I told you, were you listening?
Did you know this from the start?
Do the dates match exactly?
Did you plan when we would part?
If I won't wait for another year
I guess you'll break my heart
It's true
You already knew
So take this as a souvenir
Remember me, I'm waiting here
The disappointed, hanger on
Who stayed behind while you moved on
Wish you were here
