This town is lonely, oh, without you here
I see the people on the street
But I don’t even care
And sleep won’t come tonight
I lie awake and wonder why,
I wonder why
Well, I’ve been a drifter
Walking down this same old
Road for so long now
And it feels so strange to
Want to stay in the same place
And not look for the way out
But where you are is where
I want to be
You made my old world fall apart
So easily

I wish you were here to help
My world make sense and to
Break down my defenses
The way that only you can know
Cause love has made the whole thing new
And I am not complete without you
I’ve just got to have you near
I wish you were here

I’ve got a highrise view
Oh, but I just sit and stare
Cause these city lights tonight
They just can’t compare
To subtle words we speak
When I hold you close to me

I wish you were here to help
My world make sense and to
Break down my defenses
The way that only you can know
Cause love has made the whole thing new
And I am not complete without you
I’ve just got to have you near
I wish you were here

Now I realize, you love has made me
See the world with open eyes
And when you look at me
You make my heart believe
That this is meant to be, meant to be
I wish you were here
I wish you were here

I wish you were here to help
My world make sense and to
Break down my defenses
The way that only you can know
Cause love has made the whole thing new
And I am not complete without you
I’ve just got to have you near
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
