Favourite Song


My Favourite song of all time, at the moment!, is, Wish You Were Here (Waters, Gilmour) my favourite song changes weekly although I must admit these lyrics have stuck in my head for about 20 years:

So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys 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 heros 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.

I hear this from time to time on Arrow Rock Radio from Holland (AM675) and we can pick it up nicely in the East of England. If I can sound like a dad now, Pink Floyd stuff all sounds the same to me. More of a Yes man myself (which all sounds the same too).

I am with you on that. I play it on my gutiar at least once a week. I love that song.
