I haven’t heard this song in quite a long while, and I chanced upon it again as I was watching videos of Jackie Evancho.

I forgot how much I loved the lyrics, and how much it almost always nearly brings me to tears.

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, Phantom Of The Opera OST.

The lyrics bring many meanings to me, each unique to a particular experience. In short, I love this song in general. Lol. =3

You were once my one companion
You were all that mattered
You were once a friend and father
Then my world was shattered

Wishing you were somehow here again
Wishing you were somehow near
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed
Somehow you would be here

Wishing I could here your voice again
Knowing that I never would
Dreaming of you won’t help me to do
All that you dreamed I could

Passing bells and sculpted angels, cold and monumental
Seem for you the wrong companion, you were warm and gentle

Too many years
Fighting back tears
Why can’t the past just die!

Wishing you were here again
Knowing we must say goodbye

Try to forgive
Teach me to live
Give me the strength to try!

No more memories
No more silent tears
No more gazing across the wasted years

Help me say goodbye
Help me say goodbye!

Jackie’s rendition:
