Mooi voor later: "Wish you Were here - Pink Floyd"

42 jaar oud dus, een tijdloze klassieker en bij heel veel mensen erg geliefd.

Dit nummer van Pink Floyd uit 1975 verwijst naar het vertrek van Syd Barett uit de band, maar past ook goed bij uitvaarten.

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?
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
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here

 

Songwriters: David Gilmour / Roger Waters
