Wish You Were Here

Pink Floyd

[intro how-to (for céline)]

 

[intro]
G Em G Em G Em A Em A G [2x]

[verse]
C          So, so you think
D          you can tell
Am       Heaven from Hell
G          Blue skies from pain
D          Can you tell a green field
C           From a cold steel rail?
Am       A smile from a veil?
G          Do you think you can tell?

C          And did they get you to trade
D          Your heroes for ghosts?
Am       Hot ashes for trees?
G          Hot air for a cool breeze?
D          Cold comfort for change?
C          And did you exchange
Am       A walk on part in the war
G          For a lead role in a cage?

[intro with lead / pre-chorus]
G Em G Em G Em A Em A G

[chorus]
C D     How I wish, how I wish you were here.
Am      We're just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl
G        Year after year,
D        Running over the same old ground.
C        What have we found?
Am    The same old fears.
G       Wish you were here.

[outro with lead and vocals]
