[Verse]
  
C                           D
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
Did you exchange?
                      Am
A walk on part in the war
                      G
For a lead role in a cage

[Chorus]

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

The Tab is alright but if you listen to the song it is lacking a great deal.
