I Wish You Were Here….

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 fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

I don’t really know why I wanted to share this with you, other than they are some of the most beautiful lyrics ever written. If you haven’t heard the song for a while or it’s new to you, here, have a listen:


Guess I’m having a Pink Floyd day, what about you?

    A favourite song and I spent ages, with little success, trying to play Gilmour’s acoustic guitar part for this.
