Staring At The Walls (Wish You Were Here)

Sometimes it's harder to, let go than to grin and bear it.
I wish you were here to speak to me again,
It's been such a long while since I last had a friend,
And I'm missing the way we used to spend our time,
Just sitting there staring at the walls.

I wish you were here 'cause I'm bored without you,
I have no one to leer at and that just won't do,
For I'm missing the way we sped our way through life,
Just sitting there staring at the walls.

So tell me darling, who're you sneering at now?
Who's tears don the frame on your mantle?
Who cowers away from your sharpened tongue?
Who's took about all he can handle?

I wish you were here to keep me in my place,
For my mind's been a-wandering at maddening pace,
It's in and it's out, it's up then it's down,
While I sit here staring at the walls.

I wish you were here to scold me with your rage,
So that I can ignore you and turn a new page,
For I never sensed victory the last time around.
I just sat there and stared at the walls!
