intro guitar 1:
C                                             D
I So, so you think you can tell
.                        Am
Heaven from Hell,
.                              G
Blue skies from pain.
.                                      D
Can you tell a green field
.                               C
From a cold steel rail?
.                          Am
A smile from a veil?
.                                        G
Do you think you can tell?

.                                    C
Did they get you to trade
.                                D
Your heroes for ghosts?
.                          Am
Hot ashes for trees?
.                         G
Hot air for a cool breeze?
.                                  D
Cold comfort for change?
.                               C
And did you exchange
.                                      Am
A walk on part in the war
.                                     G
For a lead role in a cage?


C                                                             D
How I wish, how I wish you were here.
.                   Am
We’re just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found
.                          Am
The same old fears.
.                             G
Wish you were here.
