Yesterday I saw your face

Wish it’d caught me by surprise but it didn’t.

Then last night I cried in vain

Wish tears could bring you back, but they didn’t


And I miss you, and I love you

and I’d give anything just to hold you


No, I Never knew your name

But now I wish that it could be on everybody’s tongue


But they won’t see you, they won’t know you

The blood’s still fresh On the Stones they’ve thrown

to take your light away from me

and now I’m left all alone in a world, so cold

Maybe you’re better off now than I am


I just wish I could have seen your face

I wish I could have known your name before you had to go


You’re my hero


Feels like I could cry for days

Wish words could ease the pain but they didn’t

Still can’t find the words to say

Wished dreams could make you stay, but they didn’t.


And I wish I could just show you





A world where they could learn how to love you


And I’ll cry your name in vain

As I still wish that it could be on everybody’s tongue


But they won’t see you, they won’t know you

The blood’s still fresh on the stones they’ve thrown

to take your light away from me

and now I’m left all alone in a world, so cold

Maybe you’re better off now than I am


Still I wish I could have seen your face

I wish I could have known your name before you had to go


You’re my hero


And now I walk alone

down the same damn road that led you there

It feels so far from home

feels so damn far from anybody who cares



Told me I should learn to pray

Wish they’d learn how to love but they didn’t

So I prayed another way

wish love could light our way but it didn’t


But I’ll try to Just hold onto

the hope that now she’s brought you home to hold you


And that one day words of love

will chase all the hate and fear from everybody’s tongues


Cause they won’t see you, they won’t know you

The blood’s still fresh on the stones they’ve thrown

to take your light away from me

And now I wish that I just had your hand to hold

to find a better place than where I am


I just wish I could have known your name

I wish I could have kissed your face, but you had to go


You’re my hero
