Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd)


Certe canzoni rimangono inarrivabili e poi... in così poche parole tanto pathos... ed è sempre un piacere - di quelli che però stringono un po il cuore - ascoltarla.


 


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 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.
Were 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.

  1. La parte più bella di questa Canzone rimane sempre quella imbloggabile.... almeno per me: ma le parole dicono tantissimo.
