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

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

This song isn't just about losing someone: it's about losing the world you knew. Now living in a world where all your heroes are gone, nature is destroyed, there is no relief to the suffering you experience, that there is no change but only the things we do to numb the pain and try to feel comfortable. About how instead of trying to change things we accept complacency. It's about losing everything. And then on top of all this, losing those you love. That's where I am. I lost my best friend, and everyone I care about just keeps getting older until I inevitably lose them too. Innocence. Freedom. Sweet change. How I wish it was here.

Edit: Thank you all for your kind words, I am in a better place now. Life is full of loss, but that's not all it is. Wish you all the best!
