Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - Andrew Lloyd Webber

You were once my one companion
you were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father -
then my world was shattered

Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed,
if I just dreamed,
somehow you would be here

Wishing I could hear your voice again
knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
all that you dreamed I could

Passing bells
and sculpted angels,
cold and monumental,
seem, for you, the wrong companions -
you were warm and gentle

Too many years
fighting back tears
Why can't the past just die?

Wishing you were somehow here again
knowing we must say goodbye
Try to forgive
teach me to live
give me the strength to try

No more memories, no more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years
Help me say goodbye.
