Wish You Were Here Lyrics

I can be tough
I can be strong
But with you, It's not like that at all
Theres a girl who gives a shit
Behind this wall
You just walk through it

And I remember all those crazy thing you said
You left them running through my head
You're...

    Why do they have to be broken up? I interpret this song as someone who is in a relationship with someone and after finally letting them in, she's fallen really hard.

    i think its about a death too, although a divorce feels like a death, so maybe its both , either way its a beautifull song, so emotive

    I always thought this song was about her ex-husband Deryck Whibley. They were married for a good 3 years or so? If I relate it to her divorce, then it made alot of sense for:

    "You're always there, you're everywhere"

    This Is about my ex, it's been 5 months and I still have a wanting for him. He was who I am, now everytime I see him, I just want to hug and tell him you can leave me alone but forever you will be my best friend ever. If ever want to get back, I will take him in a heart beat. He's my forever and always, my person I tell everything to. I know he wont come back, as I look at the moon I remember everything and wish it was back, wish he was back.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    For Me, I Tink It's About A Break Up. She Can't Go On Without Him Because She Loves Him, And She Remembers All The Good Times They Had Together. I Put This Song As My Song For My Ex, We Had A Bad Break Up And It Just Kept Getting Worse After That. He Was Locked Up And We Were Still Together, And This Song Reminded Me Of Him, After He Broke Up With Me It Hurt That Much More To Listen To It. That's Just My Opinion Though. I Use This Song To Express How I Feel About Him And The Situation.

    He Is Still The Love Of My Life, And No Matter What He Will Always Be In My Heart. If He Asked Me To Take Him Back Right Now I Would.

    I Love You So Much Isaiah...

    My understanding to his verse

    I love the way you are
    It's who I am, don't have to try hard
    We always say, said like it is
    And the truth is that I really miss

    Is that she loves who he is and doesn't have to do much to impress her being himself is enough. They have honesty with each other and straight to the point. And she misses everything they had of all above.

    i can't get this part

    I love the way you are
    It's who I am, don't have to try hard
    We always say, said like it is
    And the truth is that I really miss

    this is the best song on the album but i can't understand this verse
