    In ARTISTdirect.com's brand new "See the Music" series, where artists go so deep that they reach marrow on specific songs in the space of two minutes, pop punk princess Avril Lavigne opened up about "Wish You Were Here," her latest single. She said, "I was kinda writing about somebody I missed, but at the same time taking into consideration that this is a song that I want a lot of people to relate to. It's about looking back and remembering all the good times and moments and reflecting on that!"

    She also talked about the simple but emotional video, where she cries her eyes out, smudging her always awesome smoky eyed look! She said, "I cry in it, for real. I've never done that before. It's nice to have a different type of performance." It's nice to see, too!

    ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino adds, "Avril Lavigne is the ultimate 21st century pop star. She creates unique and undeniable songs that begged for repeat listens, and 'Wish You Were Here' from her latest album Goodbye Lullaby will make you wish for even more."
