Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here lyrics

Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail? Did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage? So,
So you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell? 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? A smile from a veil? Cold comfort for change? Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts? Blue skies from pain? Hot air for a cool breeze? Hot ashes for trees? The same old fears
Wish you were here
