I have heard this so many times but I just do not seem to grow out of it. Unfortunately not being an intense listener of songs I always had failed to comprehend the lyrics of this masterpiece. Listen to this now... and read the lyrics... awesome!!! Indeed something around me make me "Wish you were here" too.
And the best part of a youtube embedding... Click on the tab "Menu" in the bottom right corner and you will find a list of other Pink Floyd great master pieces.. right there leaving you "Comfortably Numb" :)
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 you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
