Fred Durst/Johnny Reznick
Wish You Were Here



So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field
from a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

So do you think we can change
Everybody that Hates, Before it’s too late
So proud to be free, but who can we blame
Don’t be ashamed, Do you think we can change?

How I wish,
how I wish you were here.
We're one lost soul swimming in a fish bowl,
year after year,
running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears,
wish you were here.

We don’t need, need any more pain
We just need to remain on the very same page, So much to gain
No more losing a friend, or losing ourselves
We just need your help, So glad you’re here

So glad you’re here

    General CommentI love the fact that 9/11 made Fred Durst realize what the world can go through and I honestly believe that it made him change some of his ways and made him a better person throughout.

    General CommentThis brings back memories. Yep, how I wish you were here. Life goes by to fast. God help us... Father in heaven help us to live our lives for your glory so we may be a part of your kingdom and live forever in eternity with you Father God Elohim. Help us to know why your son shed HIS blood on the cross, for our sin. So we don't just go down and be dust and miss out on eternity.
