Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (Alternative Version)


Version of "Wish You Were Here" with jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli - that range, according Giancarlo Sciama, vice president of Marketing at EMI London, was considered by Nick Mason, drummer of the band, as the best part of the whole release schedule.







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?


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?


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.
