I dig my toes into the sand.

    "The song wasn't specifically about a person. It was about me acknowledging a very brief moment in my life and in my experience with all of these guys in making this record. In that moment, I wish that I had somebody to go, 'I love you, man.' I was wishing that there was someone there to share that moment with."-Brandon Boyd

    I think that "Wish You Were Here" has a more internal meaning. I know that brandon is really deep and sometimes, the lyrics to his song actually involve the obvious meaning, and then the real meaning within. Instead of saying that I think you wish physically here with me, I think he's saying that "I wish you were here" which pertains more to his state of mind at the moment... Like you could be with me, but you wouldn't neccesarily see how beautiful the world that he sees really can be.

    This song is about Brandon being in paradise and he wants his love to be there with him too because it is so amazing

    i think the song is like a guy dreaming in paradise and he wishes the person he loves was there with him. If that makes sense!
