Wish you were here – 2011 Remaster
Album: Wish you were here (1975)
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And 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.

one of my favorites. Thanks, digger. 🙂
Something mellow to start the day. 😉
Thanks, digger. i was part of a discussion in the Trenches last night that brought back some distasteful, very bad memories that I try to keep suppressed and couldn’t get to sleep. This was a fitting song. 🙂
Yes Angel, I saw some of that pissin` match last night.
Yes – knowing you like Pink Floyd, and after seeing your reples, I kind of figured that some mellow Floyd would be in store this morning for ya Angel. Glad you liked it.
In fact, I just got done listening to “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” off of their Animals album just now to chill out for a bit myself. 😉
