  • I can be tough
    I can be strong
    But with you, it's not like that at all

    There's a girl
    That gives a shit
    Behind this wall
    You've just walked through it

    And I remember, all those crazy things you said
    You left them running through my head
    You're always there, you're everywhere
    But right now I wish you were here

    All those crazy things we did
    Didn't think about it, just went with it
    You're always there, you're everywhere
    But right now I wish you were here

    Damn, damn, damn,
    What I'd do to have you
    Here, here, here
    I wish you were here
    Damn, damn, damn
    What I'd do to have you
    Near, near, near
    I wish you were here

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

    All those crazy things you said
    You left them running through my head
    You're always there, you're everywhere
    But right now I wish you were here

    All those crazy things we did
    Didn't think about it, just went with it
    You're always there, you're everywhere
    But right now I wish you were here

    Damn, damn, damn
    What I'd do to have you
    Here, here, here
    I wish you were here
    Damn, damn, damn
    What I'd do to have you
    Near, near, near
    I wish you were here

    No, I don't wanna let go
    I just wanna let you know
    That I never wanna let go
    Let go, oh, oh

    No, I don't wanna let go
    I just wanna let you to know
    That I never wanna let go
    (let go let go let go let go let go let go let go)

    Damn, damn, damn,
    What I'd do to have you
    Here, here, here
    I wish you were here (i wish you were)
    Damn, damn, damn
    What I'd do to have you
    Near, near, near
    I wish you were here

    Damn, damn, damn,
    What I'd do to have you
    Here, here, here
    I wish you were here
    Damn, damn, damn
    What I'd do to have you
    Near, near, near
    I wish you were here Writer/s: Avril Ramona Lavigne, Martin Karl Sandberg, Johan Karl Schuster
