New Music Monday – My Version of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”

Hell yeah…it’s New Music Monday! This week, it’s my version of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”:

Wish You Were Here

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?
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

Written by Pink Floyd

  1. Very nice. As a bit of trivia, did you know that this song featured in the London Olympic Games closing ceremony, with a re-creation of the album cover at the end?

  2. Love, love. 😀

    I jammed to your CD the other day in my car on the way to see my parents. It was wonderful. 😀

    Brilliant. Somehow when I hear you sing any song, the lyrics strike through me like lightening.

    Been away so just getting to hear this now…one of my favourite ‘Aslan’ songs. 😉 Nice job on it you did Derek. 🙂
