Catherine Wheel – Wish You Were Here lyrics
So So you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
A blue sky 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 lead-role in a cage?

And how I wish
How I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
Living in a fish bowl
Year after year
Going over the same ground
What have you found
The same old fears
I wish you were here

Oh, I wish you were here
Oh, I wish you were here
Oh, I wish you were here
Oh, I wish you were here
