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

Peter, your heartfelt wish hit me in the gut. Hard.
I feel you so much, brother -man, including the hurt and lonliness of your loss. I am made to think of my mum whom I lost suddenly. It's been many years but can still leave me feeling hopeless, sad, unanchored.

I have no easy answers, I won't be facile. But I bet the person you lost would be pained to see you be engulfed in the loss.

Do not. Get up, get out and live. Lean on family, good friends, anonymous internet strangers and seek spiritual answers and comfort, if so inclined. If not, then perhaps you may benefit from therapy. Or not.

But try it all, try everthing. (Within reason)

Peter, my deepest condolences to you. I wish I get it but know that is not helpful and I wish I had something more concrete for you.

Hang tough, keep trying and from my heart, God Bless You.

This song saved my life... My wife left me after 5 years of marriage, my mother died 3 days after my divorce, my father got drug addicted and died, and I lost my job... I've tried to kill myself several times. And when I tried to attempt to kill myself with a shotgun I suddenly heard Pink floyd Wish you were here on my radio... At that moment I smiled after 3 month's... And now Im married again to a beautiful wife, I have a son and a daughter, I got my job back and Im positive in live.... This song gave me so much love it filled up a hole in my heart. After all the things I lost in life I knew I had to let go and live my life. Without that song wish you were here, I wouldn't be here were I'm now.

Hi hello The mega fan

Truly amazing life is but a roller coaster with a track that has many ups and downs but I'm sure at the end you want to ride it again
