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

Covid-19... if you just understood what this song made me and my uncle feel the first time we heard it.. before you took him away...
Miss you "uncle shakir"
-We're two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl... year after year... but what have we found... same old fears
-Wish you were here uncle.
Gentle reminder : people.. please give more time to your loved ones... give more hugs... a little more kisses.. you never know what people feel inside ( r.i.p "lara stefani" old friend died due suicide 2011 ) or what the future hides..
-i am sorry for anyone left this world...hope they are in a good place now..
-And for you reading this :
Don't ever hurt yourself if you lost someone.. cause you are really hurting them.. Don't smoke.. Don't be even close to drugs ( r.i.p Sam edward jones cousin died due to heroine overdose 😢2017 )
Don't kill yourself we need you... I need you..please...
- I know I lost many people.. every one I lose... life hit me harder.. but I won't give up.. I will live my life... raise kids...learn new things.. meet new people...and
- die warm..in my bed at 80.
Thank you... I know you understand every word I've said.. spread love and music.. fix this world ❤
And You are amazing

It was so instant, my father was electrocuted. Got a call from his number expecting a normal father son chat. It was my panicking mother..
