Story behind the song
This is very emotional piece that I have been trying to write for a good 14 years. Back when I was a teenager, I had a really good friend, we played guitar, wrote songs, and started one of the first bands I was ever in. And even for a time, he stayed with my family. I loved him like a brother, He had it all, he was great at sports, he had a wonderful sense of humor, and he always would have a joke or a funny voice to make our long walk to school bearable. He was also quite creative, whether it would be the art that he formed, or the words that he wrote, he made you feel what he felt. Everyone always thought that he was happy, with the world at his command, but how wrong we were.
In the spring of 1990, after he underwent some major changes, with his family, losing his girlfriend, and not being able to see (us) his friends, He committed suicide at the age of 20. To this day, I don't think that he really meant to. I believe that as he lay dying, he had a change of heart, but it was too late then. And knowing him like I did, I know that he never meant to make us cry. These are the words I believe that he would have said to us, if he could have.
This song is dedicated to him. R.I.P. R.C. T.B.
I wish there was a way I could get back home.
I wish that this road wasn't so long.
I wish that I could find my way.
I wish I could see a brighter day.
But, I'm standing here in the middle of nowhere.
No one's around, does anybody care?
If I just lay down here and die,
Who would shed a tear? Who would cry?
I wish that I never knew the pain of love.
I wish everything could be just the way it was.
I wish that I was good enough for you.
I wish that someone could just return my love too.
Cause, I'm sitting here in the middle of nowhere.
Is anyone around, does anybody care?
I'm screaming out loud in the middle of the night.
Is there anyone who can hear my cry?
I wish it didn't have to be.
I wish that someone could hear my plea.
I wish I'd never seen the light of this day.
I wish I had another chance to pray.
I wish I never did what I did.
I wish that I could take back this bid.
I wish that I could talk with you once again.
I wish that this wasn't the end.
Now, I'm lying here in the middle of nowhere.
No one's around, but now, I know that you care.
But it's too late for goodbye.
I'm so sorry I didn't mean to make you cry.
