Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue sky from pain?

Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?

Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish,
How I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year.

Running over the same old ground
What have we found
The same old fears,
Wish you were here.
