Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here


 


Shine on You Crazy Diamond I-V

Remember when you were young
you shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes
like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the crossfire
of childhood and stardom
blown on the steel breeze
Come on you target
for faraway laughter
come on you stranger
you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon
you cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night
and exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well you wore out your welcome
with random precision
rode on the steel breeze
Come on you raver
you seer of visions,
come on you painter
you piper, you prisoner, and shine!


Welcome to the Machine

Welcome my son
welcome to the machine
Where have you been?
It's alright we know where you've been
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time
provided with toys and Scouting for Boys
You bought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn't like school
and you know you're nobody's fool
So welcome to the machine

Welcome my son
welcome to the machine
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star
he played a mean guitar
He always ate in the Steak Bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machine.


Have a Cigar

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar
You're gonna go far, fly high
You're never gonna die,
you're gonna make it if you try
they're gonna love you

Well I've always had a deep respect
and I mean that most sincerely
The band is just fantastic
that is really what I think
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

We're just knocked out
We heard about the sell out
You gotta get an album out
You owe it to the people
We're so happy we can hardly count
Everybody else is just green
have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start
it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train


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?

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, 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

Deseo que estuvieras aquí

¿Así, así que crees que puedes diferenciar
el Cielo del Infierno?
¿cielos azules del dolor?
¿Puedes diferenciar un campo verde
de un frío riel de acero?
¿Un sonrisa de un velo?
¿Crees que puedes diferenciarlos?

¿Y lograron que cambies
tus héroes por espíritus?
¿Cenizas calientes por árboles?
¿aire caliente por una brisa fría?
¿fría comodidad por cambio?
Y cambiaste
una caminata en la guerra
por un rol principal en una jaula?

Como deseo, como deseo que estuvieras aquí
Sólo somos dos almas que nadan en una pecera
año tras año
corriendo sobre el mismo viejo terreno
¿Qué hemos descubierto?
Los mismos viejos miedos
Deseo que estuvieras aquí


Shine on You Crazy Diamond VI-IX

Nobody knows where you are
how near or how far
Shine on you crazy diamond
Pile on many more layers
and I'll be joining you there
Shine on you crazy diamond
And we'll bask in the shadow
of yesterday's triumph
sail on the steel breeze
Come on you boy child
you winner and loser
come on you miner
for truth and delusion, and shine ...
