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 leading 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.

About this song

"Wish You Were Here" is the title track on Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here. The song's lyrics encompass writer Roger Waters' feelings of alienation from other people. Like most of the album, it refers to former Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett and his breakdown. The main riff came to David Gilmour while playing his acoustic guitar in Abbey Road Studios. Gilmour then demonstrated the riff to Waters, who was impressed. They collaborated to complete the song, as Waters had already written some lyrics. Read more on Last.fm.
