Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd!

So, so you think you can tell,
heaven from hell,
blue skies 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,
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 fishbowl,
year after year.
Running over the same old ground,
what have we found,
the same old fears,
wish you were here.
