I’ve heard and liked a lot of songs by Avril Lavigne, but this is a new one for me. I like it a lot, because she shows so much emotion in the video. I know we’ve all had the experience of missing someone, wishing they were still here.

From the Wiki article:

Wish You Were Here” is a song by Canadian singer Avril Lavigne from her fourth studio album, Goodbye Lullaby (2011). The song was released on September 9, 2011 by RCA Records as the third and final single from the album. “Wish You Were Here” was written by Lavigne along with the song’s producers Max Martin and Shellback. According to Lavigne, the song shows her vulnerable side. Critical reception toward the song was positive, with critics praising it as a highlight on the album.

“Wish You Were Here” was described as a midtempo power ballad song, while featuring soaring strings, piano and drum kits. The lyrics talk about missing someone and something we all go through in our lives.

In an interview with MTV News, Lavigne described the song as the most personal track on the album. “It was more raw and stripped-down and more emotional and I wasn’t holding back,”

“Wish You Were Here”, by Avril Lavigne, was released as a single from her album, “Goodbye Lullaby”, in 2011. It was written by Avril Lavigne, Max Martin, & Shellback, and is on the RCA label.

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

      • It is a great community for all those reasons. After awhile we sort of get to know other bloggers, as we all seem to travel in the same prompt circles. It’s like meeting up with your friends here. 🙂
