Track Name: Wish You Were Here
Leave me something
To find when you go
Draw on map
Or use a piece of string
Its getting dark
And we’re out of smokes
The things we used to hide
Behind everything
CHORUS:
But I’m, I’m not wrong
To wish you were stronger
I’m glad that you’re gone
I think that I’m a goner
I pray for a good year
With that or to disappear
I’m glad that you’re gone
But I wish you were here
I knew you once
But then I didn’t
Shared some clothes
But then we didn’t
And you asked me to dance
But I said that I shouldn’t
But you only asked because you you knew that I wouldn’t
CHORUS:
But I’m, I’m not wrong
To wish you were stronger
I’m glad that your gone
But maybe I’m a goner
I pray for a good year
With that or I disappear
I’m glad that you’re gone
I wish you were here
CHORUS:
I’m not wrong
To wish you were strong
And I’m glad that your gone
But I think I’m the goner
I pray for a good year
With that or to disappear
I’m glad that your gone
But I wish you were here
Track Name: Wish You Were Here (The Get Up Kids Cover)
would you stay for one night?
if i didn't come home?
the end of a big fight
doesn't matter anymore
the point in my midlife
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?
if it's all ending so soon
how could i possibly let go?
comes to a head, this is high noon
the finale we have planned
but hours pass like years
i 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
the past is all we know
the memories are clear
i wish you were here
if i told you, were you listening?
did you know this from the start?
do the dates match exactly?
your 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
disappointed, hanging on
stayed behind while you moved on
wish you were here
Track Name: Wish You Were Here (Ryan Adams Cover)
Cotton candy and a rotten mouth
You know you're so fucked up
You know I couldn't help but have it for you

And everybody knows the way I walk
And knows the way I talk
And knows the way I feel about you
It's all a bunch of shit
And there's nothing to do around here
It's totally fucked up
I'm totally fucked up
Wish you were here

And streets that only turn to boulevards
And houses with back yards
and it's raining like hell on the cars
And everybody knows the way I walk
And knows the way I talk
Knows the way I feel about you
It's all a bunch of shit
And there's nothing to do around here
It's totally fucked
I'm totally fucked
Wish you were here

And if I could have my way
We'd take some drugs
And we'd smile
We'd smile
We'd smile
But not tonight, my dear
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Track Name: Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd)
So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange a walk on part in the war for a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
