Rasputina – Wish You Were Here 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?
And did they get you to trade your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees?
Do you think you can tell?
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.
Hot air for a cool breeze? Cold comfort for change?
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Wish you were here.
Running over the same old ground. How we found the same old fears.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
Running over the same old ground. How we found the same old fears.
Wish you were here.

This song was originally performed by Pink Floyd
