    Wish You Were Here Lyrics – Pink Floyd 

    [Spoken Intro]
    And disciplinary remains mercifully
    Yes and um, I’m with you Derek, this star nonsense
    Yes, yes, now which is it?
    I am sure of it

    [Twelve-string guitar Intro]

    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?

    [Acoustic Guitar Solo]
    How I wish, how I wish you were here
    We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl year after year
    Running over the same old ground, what have we found?
    The same old fears, wish you were here

    [Instrumental Outro & Scatting]
