Wish You Were Here

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.

  1. Big Pink Floyd fan. I haven’t listened to it much in the last few years, but when I do, I still love it as much as I did in younger years. Same with ” The Moody Blues,” King Crimson, Beatles, Michael Jackson, Van Halen. Guess I should stop hey?


      1. Yes carry on. It is just like an old friend or a new one. Whatever one’s point of view is.
        Them and the Moody Blues takes me to places in my spirit that I might not go otherwise.
