Wish you were here

Ma e Sofia a Rosazza

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 lead 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.

Wish you were here, Pinka Floide
