"If You Were Here" as written by Joakim Herbert Berg, Harri Kalervo Manty, Markus Mikael Mustonen, Sami Petteri Sirvio, Martin Harry Skold and Christopher John Gordon....
Sleep
I don´t need to sleep
I hide my fist behind me
Dream
I don´t sleep I dream
My conscience lays beside me

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

Speak
I don´t need to speak
You´re satisfied with silece
Scream
I won´t speak I´ll scream
My conscience walks behind me

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

Sleep
And all my energy
I waste on dreams of silence

If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day
If you were here
If you were here if I was there
If you were here Today, this day

    General CommentThe funny thing is that the lyrics to "Om du var här" (the swedish version to "If you were here" ) isn't like this one... Well, the contents in it is as well as the same, but not really the lines... I guess that is because they want it to match with the same melody as in Sweden, I dunno, really I haven't even listened to the english versions... :)
