In the darkness I unravel
New truths I have suffered
For so long to embrace
They will change me from here on
But I can't share it with anyone
I wish you were here with me tonight

When I am not alone
I sever silent moments
Building bridges with meaningless words
And only feel the distance further
Remember being happy in our silence
I wish that you were with me tonight

I don't need a reason, there's nothing to explain
I can't reproach your leaving to justify my pain
But can I really understand
I wish you were here with me tonight

I read over all you wrote me
The words mean so much more these days
They echo in my soul
They sting me like a burn
Can someone feel too much?
I wish you were here with me tonight

    General Commentoh fuck i love this song. it means so much to me, it delved into my heart. i had just been dumped by my girlfriend after 3 years when i first heard this song, no need to say it brought on tears. i think this song is just about a girl the guy wants who he had, who he is never ging to get back. and is just remembering there time together. how he reads over all they wrote him and that the words mean so much more these days. is just beautiful and so true.
    the reason this song and all there others are so meaningful is because they are so true

    General Comment"This one is special, just for you"

    The singer starts the encore without his bandmates, he plugs his guitar. Spotlight pointing at him.

    "This one is about a friend. He had a lot of problems. He is no longer with us"

    The he starts singing Bridges with a clean guitar tone. The whole audience stops bantering and watches as he plays. Lit lighters appear, held overhead. Everyone is quiet and standing still, except the singer.

    After he finishes, rest of the band appear on stage and they continue the encore with Echoes

    This is the best I could remember of what he said before playing Bridges alone.
