Wish You Were Here

VERSE
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?

VERSE
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?

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
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,
And how we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
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,
And how we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

INSTRUMENTAL
