Lyrics


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?


And did they get you to trade

Your heroes 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 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



Songwriters: David Gilmour / Roger Waters
