how i wish

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 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 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

we've gotta hold on, to what we've got...we've got each other, and that's a lot..
