Wish You Were Here

There’s distance between us
And you’re on my mind
As I lay here in the darkness
I can find no peace inside

I wish you were here holding me tight
If I had you near, you’d make it alright
I wish you were here
‘Cause I feel like a child tonight

There’s rain on my window
And I can count the drops
But I can’t help feeling lonely
There’s no way, no way that I could stop

I wish you were here holding me tight
If I had you near, you’d make it alright
I wish you were here
‘Cause I feel like a child tonight

Each moment is a memory
Time’s so unkind
Every hour filled with an emptiness
I can’t hide

Oh, this distance between us
Can’t get you off of my mind
As I lay here in the darkness
I can find no peace inside

I wish you were here holding me tight
If I had you near, you’d make it alright
I wish you were here
‘Cause I feel like a child tonight

I wish you were here

About the Song

Because of the space limitations of vinyl, the instrumental solo at the end of “Wish You Were Here” was shortened to fit on the album.
