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?

And 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 you found? The same old fears
Wish you were here


Written by:

David Gilmour and Roger Waters


Performed live at the Tsunami Aid concert in 2004, and in 2005's Live 8
