Wish You Were Here Song Lyrics

Wish You Were Here – 1974 

Just A Chance

Doesn’t matter what you think I do
All I wanna do is see it through
You may say it’s not a great romance
But all I want from you is just a chance to try
Any way at all
Don’t you think we know it has to hurt
Are minds that small?

I won’t tell you if it’s short or long
All I know is that it don’t feel wrong
You may say it’s not a great romance
But all we want from you is just a chance to try
Any way we can
Don’t you think we know it has to hurt
Won’t you understand?

Doesn’t matter what you think I do
All I wanna do is see it through
You may say it’s not a great romance
But all I want from you is just a chance to try
Any way we can
Don’t you think we know it has to hurt
Won’t you understand?

Ooooooh

Your So Fine

Let me see your face
Let me see you smile
None can measure your love in miles
Only you can comfort me
You’re so fine

You can take me up
You can bring me down
Put my feet back on the ground
Since you got a hold on me, I’m alive
I’m alive

Builds around me fences
Put my back against the wall
You broke into my world and made me crawl
Broken my defenses
Made me want you more and more
Came into my life
I asked for more, more and more

Can’t get enough
Enough of your love
I’ve learned my lesson well
Now it’s good enough
Maybe someday the world will come
I’m alive
I’m alive

Builds around me fences
Put my back against the wall
You broke into my world and made me crawl
Broken my defenses
Made me want you more and more
You came into my life
I asked for more, more and more.

Got To Get Out Of Here

Gotta get outta here
A man who feels the space begins to need the wall
Gotta be others near
Maybe someone fills the space behind the fault
Maybe not at all
Maybe not at all

Baby, a man gets wise
To running ’round in circles
He ain’t got no choice
Only the fool survives
Running ’round in circles
Trying to make some noise
Got no choice
He’s got no choice

Well, I learned to live without face
Learned to feed my soul
I can learn the chords to right place
Hang onto my own

I gotta find a place
See and dream
Who knows which way the dice will fall
I got a mind to face
But maybe I can find my place behind the wall
Maybe not at all
Maybe not at all

Well, I gotta get out of here
Gotta be others near
I gotta find a place
Somewhere without a race
I gotta know it all
Don’t wanna be alone
Somewhere I wanna be
Something I really see
Gotta get out of here
Gotta get out of here
Gotta get out of here.

No One Knows

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it show

Keep it coming, keep it long
Caress me with your body song
Reach it higher with each sigh
Knowing soon that we will fly

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it flow

Keep it moving, keep it bright
And guide me with your body light
Come in closer with each sigh
Knowing soon that we will fly

No one knows
No one knows
No one knows
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it show
No one knows
No one knows how good I feel
When you let it flow.]

Keep on feeling, keep it whole
And lead me with your body soul
Take me higher with each sigh
Knowing you can make me fly

No one knows it
No one knows it
No one knows it, no
No one knows how good I feel
When I see you glow.

Dennis

Deeper waters flowed
Recently it showed
Tryin’ to cover your head
Tryin’ to frighten you
Tryin’ to fight with you
Really gettin’ you scared
But don’t you worry, you love of mine
Pretty soon it will all be fine
And we’ll just go on

Higher hills to climb
Climbin’ all the time
Tryin’ to find a way through
Fallin’ down again, on the ground again
Wonderin’ what you can do
But don’t you worry, you love of ours
They look like weeds, but they’re really flowers
And they’ll soon be gone

You won’t stand up, you won’t sit down
Your head’s a mile above the ground
And though we tend to scold you now
I couldn’t start to tell you how
We couldn’t start to tell you how
There’s just no way to say how much we love you

You, little Dennis, you
You’re full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes
You’re a prize

It could be bad, it could be worse
You’re taking out your mother’s purse
And though you cried when you got told
The money there was for the old
To keep their dogs from getting cold
The only thing that can’t be sold is love

You, little Dennis, you
You’re full of new surprise
Love you
You, little Dennis with the rascal in your eyes

Will you pick up your toys?
Will you be a good boy?
Will you please, please?

There’s a way
There’s a way
If you’ll play
If you’ll stay
There’s a way through
There’s a way to take away blue
Take away blue

There’s a way
There’s a way
If you’ll play
If you’ll stay
There’s a way through
There’s a way to take away blue
Take away blue

There’s a way
There’s a way
If you’ll play
If you’ll stay
There’s a way through
There’s a way to…

In The Meantime/Some Other Time

I can remember
Knowing you better some other time (low song)
I can remember
Being in love with a friend of mine

I’ve seen it before, now
It’s always the same
Nothing can change any part
I know what you’re doin’
I think it’s a shame
I’m gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time

I could believe in, love has a reason for holdin’ on (hold on)
I can remember being together and feeling strong

But somehow we lost it, drifted apart
It really took a piece of my heart
I’ve done it before now
It’s always the same
I’m gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time

I’ve seen it before now
It’s always the same
Nothing can change any part
I know what you’re doin’
I think it’s a shame
I’m gonna have to make a new start
I can remember some other time

I can remember some other time.

Love Time

Every day I look into your eyes
I see a love that’s there
I see myself and stare

Loving you so many different ways
A kind of harmony
Another part of me
Makes it harder now

If it’s easy to believe it
It’s hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that’s in your eyes

Well if it’s easy to believe it
It’s hard to realize
As easy to believe it
As the love that’s in your eyes

Found amongst the laughter and the tears
Love I had inside
Love I used to hide
Makes it harder now
Harder now.

King Of The Load

He’s the king of the road
The old man, the child
The joker runnin’ wild, makin’ it funny
He’s of no fixed abode
When he carries the load
He’ll do anything he can to make it funny

But he’ll never say die
If he’s livin’ a lie
Pick up his hat and go
If there’s reason to cry
He’ll just make it a sigh
And wander on down the road

He’s a natural friend
With the money to lend
Or whatever it takes to turn you on, too
He’s the father, the son
He don’t owe anyone
All his debts are all paid
With his confection

Then he’ll wander away
With no time in his way
Pick up his hat and go
He’ll never say die
If he’s livin’ a lie
Just wander on down the road
Wander on down the road

And he’ll wander away
With no time in his way
Pick up his hat and go
He never said die
He was livin’ a lie
Just wandered on down the road
Wandered on down the road
Wandered on down the road

Ahhhhh
Mmmmmmmmm
Ahhhhh.

Meanwhile Back At The Ranch

Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?

If they only would let us know
Then we’d know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us “no”, tell us “no”

You, you always played the fool (you always played the fool)
You always break the rule
At every single school you know (you always break the rule)
It always pulled you down
They could always pull you down

You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why’d you let it bring you down?

Why do you think me so hard to get?
Is there something they might regret?
Is it better to just forget, just forget?

If they only would let us know
Then we’d know just how far to go
But instead they just tell us “no”, tell us “no”

You, you never stayed the same (you never stayed the same)
And now you take the blame
For all the little games they play (you always take the blame)
And let it bring you down
Why’d you let it bring you down?

Should I Smoke

Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won’t somebody help me?

Don’t know what to say
You’re makin’ me better
I’ve learned how to pray
Change in the weather today
Don’t know what to do
Just makes it hard to lose

The day passes by
Nobody listens
And nobody cries
For anyone’s mission today
Don’t know what to do
Just makes it hard to choose

Should I smoke or should I die?
Somebody must tell me why
Should I laugh, should I cry
Won’t somebody help me?
