Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Lyrics


(Yes, and disciplinary remains mercifully)
(Yes, and um, I'm with you Derek, this star nonsense)
(Yes, yes)
(Now, which is it?)
(I am sure of it)

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

So, so you think you can tell

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

My father passed away this morning peacefully while Pink Floyd was playing...This used to be his favorite song by them. I was wearing my Dark Side of the Moon T-shirt during his last days and am also thinking about tattooing that album cover on my arm. Rest in peace dad, thank you for everything...I'll miss you.

God bless you. Not enough to say anymore. There will never be musicians like Pink anymore. They brought out in all of us the inner conflicts and peace in everyday life. If your Dad loved this song, he had a beautiful spirit, and I feel you absorbed that spirit. Be proud. He will forever live in you, and guide you to enjoy and realize the important things in life.🌹

One of the songs I fell asleep to as a child.
It still has this everlasting nostalgia to it. This comfort towards pain. It's sublime.

This was sone of my mother's favorite songs, I miss her so much, she passed away almost 7 years now when I was a little kid. She taught me so much about music, that's her legacy.
