wish you were here

since the day you went away
nothing´s changed, it´s still the same
i´m living hell, you´re somewhere else
when he comes home drunk again
then he makes me feel the pain
and my desperate tears are falling…

down again, I stop to pray
it´s all fading away
you are so far and yet so near
sometimes I wish that you were here
to take away my pain and fear
sometimes I wish that you were here

you´ve heard the battle through the wall
seen black eyes and broken glass
but you never said a thing at all
mother what could I have done
always thought I´d be the one
to stand strong, but now I´m feeling…
