i wish you were here

i can't talk about you
it hurts my head
my world took a strange turn
since you left
where have you gone to
lost the thread
someone must'a stole you...no trace yet

i wish you were here
to read to me
to laugh with me
why do you haunt me
i wish you were here
i wish you were here
i wish you were here
to rock me

police tried to press me
was there a fight
stripped down my memories
took all night
i told them i love her
i would not lie
you've got to find her

i might spend a lifetime
in suspense
no story unwinds
no evidence
your face in the papers
front page news
disappeared into vapors
