Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

This song is by Andrew Lloyd Webber and appears on the musical soundtrack The Phantom of the Opera (1986).

This song has been covered by…
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.
