If You Were Here Lyrics

Artist: Poe
Album: Haunted

If you were here
I know that you would
Truly be amazed
At what's become of what you made
If you were here
You would know how I treasured every day
How every single word you spoke
Echo's in me like a memory of hope

When you were here
You could not feel the value that I placed
On every look that crossed your face
When you were here
I did not know just how I had embraced
All that you hid behind your face
Could not hide from me
'Cause it hid in me too

Hello tiger, it's great fun, talking with you. like this--in fact I'm going to do it more often

Now that I'm here I hear you and wonder if maybe you can hear yourself
Ringing in me now that your somewhere else.

I miss you a lot

'Cause I hear your strange music gentle and true

But I'm so proud of everything you do there

Singing inside me with the best parts of you

Next time I see you you'll proudly sing it back to me

Now that I'm here

I hope somewhere you here them too

Now that I'm here

I love you...

It's okay you can go now

A great song for someone's dad or any love one that truly effected your life. It speaks wonders about the influence one person can make in your life and that we need to treasure that more while in the moment as well as later.

After listening to the rest of the album having this as the last song (not counting Hey Pretty with Mark's voiceover), this made me cry. It's such a completely touching song about the relationship between a father and daughter, a reflection on it after stepping back from the complex and angry emotions the relationship can evoke.

I have cried to this song many, many times. My father and I used to listen to this CD together, and after he was gone, it was a source of very well illustrated pain and comfort.

I always heard this from my own perspective, being with a man 30 years my senior. The first stumbling steps of friendship blossoming into more... it says everything to me

Awash in tears, missing my mom -- who died a few years ago, way too early -- so much.
