Unfortunately this was one of my first covers and I was not familiarized with the recording softwares. So I made a lot of mistakes with the audio tracks, there is a lot of problems of latency, delays and even with syncronization between the audio and video, etc....So I will do another cover of this song for a question of justice to this music. I should post it very soon.
This Cover and includes almost all instruments used in original song (plus lap steel) and the collaboration of Sandra Mantegassi as the lead singer.
"Wish You Were Here" is the title track on Pink Floyd's 1975 album Wish You Were Here. The song's lyrics encompass writer Roger Waters' feelings of alienation from other people. Like most of the album, it refers to former Pink Floyd member Syd Barrett and his breakdown. David Gilmour and Roger Waters collaborated to write the music.[wikipedia].
I do not own this song. This video is a tribute to the Pink Floyd band
Roger Waters — Fender bass guitar, tape effects
David Gilmour — 6- and 12-string acoustic guitars, pedal steel guitar, tape effects, lead and backing vocals
Richard Wright — Steinway piano, Minimoog
Nick Mason — drums, tape effects
Stéphane Grappelli — violin
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.
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here
