Wish I Were Here Lyrics

Wish I Were Here by Next To Normal  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Wish I Were Here Diana:
In an instant, lightning flashes,
And the burst might leave me blind—
When the bolt of lightning crashes,
And it burns right through my mind.

It's like someone drained my brain out,
Set my frozen mind to thaw.
Let the lethargy and pain out,
While I stood and watched in awe.

I am riding on the brightest buzz...
I am worlds away from who I was...
And they told me it would change me—
Though they don't know how it does.

Voices:
Though they don't know how it does.

Diana:
I have lived a life of clouds and grey,
But this is crystal clear...
Wish I were here.

Voices:
Wish I were here.

Diana:
I imagine it's remarkable.
Exuberant. Austere.
Wish I were here. Voices:
Wish I were here.
Wish I were here.
Wish I were here.
Natalie:
It's euphoria, it's anger, Voices & Diana:
It's the winter wind, it's fire. It's the winter wind, it's fire.
And it kills my deepest hunger,
As it fills me with desire.
Natalie & Diana:
I'm the light and heat of ev'ry sun...
I'm a bullet from a magic gun...
And I'm trying to enjoy it— Voices:
But I'm missing all the fun. I am missing all the fun.

Am I feeling what I think I'm feeling? Oooh...
The hope, the heat, and fear? Oooh...
Wish I were here. Wish I were here.

Natalie & Diana:
Is this someone else's head trip? Ah...
Do I just disappear? Ah...
Wish I were here.
Wish I were here.
Wish I were here.
Wish I were... here.
Plug me in,
And turn me on,
And flip the switch—
I'm good as gone.

It slips my skin, Oh...
And trips my brain. Oh...
I feel the burn,
But I don't' feel the pain. Pain.

Is my brain reborn Ah...
Or is it wrecked? Ah...
In freedom or fear? Ah...
Wish I were here. Wish I were—

Have I blown my mind forever? Oh!
Is cloudy my new clear? Oh!
Wish I were here... Wish I
Wish I were here... Were
Wish I were— Here.

Natalie:
Can I hide my stupid hunger?
Fake some confidence and cheer?
Wish I were here.
Wish I were here.
