well, was gonna start with how it was 6 years ago when we committed to opening our hearts –
a move that’s been amazing. So, happy 6th anniv, Blue Monkey Highlight – certainly a highlight of my life.
then how it’s less a kick to the gut, more a kick to the head, and for no good reason, when ‘wish you were here’ is played on my drive in to work … damn.
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 you found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
