  • Would you stay for one night?
    If I didn't come home?
    The end of a big fight
    Doesn't matter anymore
    The point in my midlife
    Situation stands
    But hours pass like years
    Wish you were here
    Wish you were here
    Did I open an old wound?
    Is there something I should know?
    If it's all ending so soon
    How could I possibly let go?
    Comes to a head, this is high noon
    The finale we have planned
    But hours pass like years
    I wish you were here
    Say the words so slow
    Say it without fear
    You won't turn to go
    You won't leave me here
    The past is all we know
    The memories are clear
    I wish you were here
    If I told you, were you listening?
    Did you know this from the start?
    Do the dates match exactly?
    Your plan when we would part?
    If I won't wait for another year
    I guess you'll break my heart
    It's true
    You already knew
    So take this as a souvenir
    Remember me, I'm waiting here
    Disappointed, hanging on
    Stayed behind while you moved on
