"Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" from the Phantom of the Opera

From The Phantom of the Opera

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 agian

Knowing that I never would

Dreaming of you won't help me to do

Or what you dreamed I could

Passing veils and sculpted angels

Cold and one who meant you

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 mush say good bye

Try to forgive

Teach me to live

Give me the strength to fly

O'er the meadow whose goal was silent tears

Through the fields and across the wasted years

How do we say good bye?
