Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd Lyrics

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

Written by: David Gilmour, Roger Waters

My grandmother was dying of lung cancer and in her final days my father and I brought her home from the hospital so she could die peacefully in her own home. On the car ride back from the hospital she told me to turn on the radio so that she could "hear music one last time", and this song came on the radio. She would die later that evening, some songs are just more important than words man

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.


May your dad rest in peace ❤️🕊️
