Sunday Song Lyric:
Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" is simply one of my favorite songs of all time. It's timeless. A Floyd song even non-Floyd fans can love. It only ranked #316 in Rolling Stone's list of greatest songs (which is probably reason #423 why such lists are a waste of time), but it's worth posting as a Sunday Song Lyric anyhow.
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.
Here's a live version of the song from the band's reunion.

As a side note, I've always had something against Pink Floyd covers (and don't get me started on Pink Floyd cover bands). Yet I saw Velvet Revolver cover this song in concert a few years back and was blown away. Here's a video of them performing the song at another show.
