Lyrics

When we broke up I had to get away
My poor heart needed a holiday
Packed my bags, ended up in the south of France
Now my heart says to give you a second chance

Cause I get that bein' so far apart is so hard
So I'm sendin' you a post card... Wish You Were Here

I'll bake you up your favorite apple pie
And put in just a pinch of cyanide
I want you near... Wish You Were Here
You're the star of all my dreams and wishes
Yeah, I dream of makin' you sleep with the fishes
I need you near... Wish You Were Here

Cobblestone and dinner by candle light
Never once had the urge to get into a fight
I'm stayin' up watchin' all the clouds hide the moon
You're probably thinkin, "Oh, she'll be comin' home real soon."

Cause I get that being so far apart is so hard
So I'm sending you a post card... Wish You Were Here

I'll drive you to the riviera seaside
And if I'm lucky you'll get caught in the rip tide
I want you near... Wish You Were Here
Got a voodoo doll with your picture
Gonna give you a plague from biblical scripture
I need you near... Wish You Were Here

It took so long just to figure it out,
That I'm better off without you, without a doubt
But I got big plans for you that I gotta whisper in your ear... Wish You Were Here

I want you near... Wish You Were Here
Come on over, all I need is five minutes
Cause your back could use a sharp knife in it

I'll bake you up your favorite apple pie
And put in just a pinch of cyanide
I want you near, I want you near... Wish You Were Here
You're the star of all my dreams and wishes
Yeah, I dream of makin' you sleep with the fishes
I need you near... Wish You Were Here
Wish You Were Here
Wish You Were Here
