I never called you and now it's too late
To say all the words that I've wanted to say
The doctor said: Oh, there's a fight up ahead
I should've been there by your hospital bed

So it rains every day, oh, it rains every day
No, I haven't got the words to say

How I wish I was a better friend
Before it was too late
I wish that I would've been there in the end
I wish I was a better friend

I wasn't there when you said your goodbye and I
Replay in my mind 'bout a thousand times
I wasn't there for those rivers you cried
I was always too busy, no, I didn't make the time

So it rains every day, oh, it rains every day
I haven't got the words to say

How I wish I was a better friend
Before it was too late
I wish that I would've been there in the end
I wish I was a better friend

And every day, I wish you were here
Oh, every day I wish
Oh, every minute of every year
I swear I feel you near
Near me

How I wish I was (how I wish) a better friend (better friend)
Before it was too late
I wish that I would've been there in the end
I wish I was a better friend
