Alpha Blondy - Wish You Were Here



Alpha Blondy is an African legend who has been churning out hit after hit over a career that has spanned many decades. "Wish You Were Here" is a hit anyone who prefers any genre would love. Have a listen...

"So,

So you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Can you tell a green field

Blue skies from pain
A smile from a veil?

From a cold steel rail?
Did they get you to trade

Do you think you can tell?
Hot air for a cool breeze?

Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
A walk on part in the war

Cold comfort for change?
Did you exchange
For a lead role in a cage?
Swimming in a fish bowl,

How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're just two lost souls
The same old fears Wish you were here..."
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
