Dear friend of mine, the weather's fine
Today I saw some ruins of the Roman world's decline
And I climbed old Spanish steps, you've heard so much about
But Rome has lost its glory, I don't know what it's about

I wish you were here
When the shadows fall and the rushing traffic stills
I wish you were here
And the bells are ringing on the seven hills
I make my way to a small cafe
I wonder what you did today
I wish you were here

Dear one at home, I just flew in from Rome
And Paris is a postcard all decked out in color chrome
So I climbed the Eiffel Tower and I prayed at Notre Dame
But I just can't find the romance and I wonder why I came

I wish you were here
On the Champs-Élysées, lovers walking hand in hand
I wish you were here
They take one look at me and they seem to understand
This city of light is a lovely sight
The first bright star I see tonight
I wish you were here

Now I write this on the plane
And I'm drinking cheap champagne
And wonderin' why two people got so far apart

I wish you were here
Here in London where the rain is pouring down
I wish you were here
On this airplane headed back to L.A. town
I'll never leave you alone again
I'm coming home, but until then
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here
(I wish you were here)
I wish you were here
