I'm standing on this wooden pier
Just people getting along
A little boy with his fishing gear
And an old man playing a song
I took a picture of these strangers
Just like you would do
I feel so underworked and out of danger
I wish that you could too

I wish you were here
To soak up this town
I can't wait any longer
The sun's going down
And I've been thinking, lately
Holding back a tear
I wish you were here

I walked along the sandy shore
Holding both my shoes
And I could smell the candy store
And your honey-glazed cashews
A family on a blanket
Full of sunscreen, shades and food
A radio playing Maggie May
I almost came unglued

I wish you were here
I think you'd love this town
I can't wait any longer
The sun's almost down
And I've been thinking, lately
Holding back a tear
I wish you were here

And you're the one that carries me
When my head feels out of control
And you will always be the one
That lingers in my soul

I wish you were here
I know you'll love this town
I can't wait any longer
The sun's just went down
And I've been thinking, lately
Holding back a tear
I wish you were here
In the light from these lamps on this lonely street
And I've been thinking, lately
Still holding back a tear
I wish you were here
I wish you were here
