"Wish You Were Here" as written by David Katz, Sam Hollander, Cassadee Pope and Matt Scannell....
Would you stay for one night?
If I didn't come home?
The end of a big fight
Doesn't matter anymore
The point in my midlife
Situation stands
But hours pass like years
Wish you were here
Wish you were here
Did I open an old wound?
Is there something I should know?
If it's all ending so soon
How could I possibly let go?
Comes to a head, this is high noon
The finale we have planned
But hours pass like years
I wish you were here
Say the words so slow
Say it without fear
You won't turn to go
You won't leave me here
The past is all we know
The memories are clear
I wish you were here
If I told you, were you listening?
Did you know this from the start?
Do the dates match exactly?
Your plan when we would part?
If I won't wait for another year
I guess you'll break my heart
It's true
You already knew
So take this as a souvenir
Remember me, I'm waiting here
Disappointed, hanging on
Stayed behind while you moved on
Wish you were here

    General Commenti was reading a tguk article/interview and matt (pryor) said:

    "There two friends of mine, they were basically like, 'Well, I'm moving, so we're gonna break up in three months.' And I was just like, 'What's the f*cking point of staying in a relationship if you know exactly when its gonna end?' It's sort of like knowing the day you're gonna die."

    but i think, whats the point of breaking up before you leave...you might as well enjoy the time you have left with that person right...you may never have it again, so make the most of it....

    General Commentaahh. sad sad sad. =\

    i think the last few lines are suposed to be "the dissapointed hanger on, who stayed behind while you moved on.."

    thats what it sounds like to me at least..anyone agree?

    this song makes me sad. bleh. but it rules..heh. the whole On A Wire album is just amazing. i love the get up kids..
