Verse 1:
Got a [Eb]postcard
A postcard from
a better place
And [G#]it read
I wish you were here
I wish you were
And the [Eb]soundtrack
The soundtrack from
a better night
And [G#]it sang
I wish you were here
You should have
stayed here
As [Cm]life leaves my eyes I
rea[Bb]lize I must have died
It [G#]looks like I didn?t make
it through the night
I never got to say good[Eb]bye
I?ll never get to say [Bb]anything
at all again to a [Fm]world
That barely knew I was a[G#]live
Sing a requiem [Eb]for me
Make it sad but [Bb]sweet
A song about [Fm]release
A minor key [G#]symphony
Verse 2:
Found a [Eb]letter
A letter from A
dear old friend
And [G#]it said
"I wish you were here"
I wish you were
And a [Eb]prayer
A prayer in A
familiar voice
And [G#]she wept
I wish you were here
Why can?t you be here?
(Repeat Refrain and Chorus)
[Cm] I got your flowers today
So perfectly ar[G#]ranged
With a card attached
?I?m sorry you could not s[Cm]tay?
They came a little late
I had to wait til they [Bb]died
There?s no tears up here
But I?m sure that
I would have cried
Verse 3:
[Eb] To everyone I?ve loved
To all who once loved [Fm]me
I never meant to [G#]leave
(Repeat Chorus)
Sing a requiem [Eb]for me
Make it sad but [Bb]sweet
A song about [Fm]release
A minor key symphony
