[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...

This is a great tab, and im sure everyone has noticed it by now or will soon and I just hate to have to be the a**hole to point it out. At the end where he says "lost souls swimming in a fish bowl..." the G,D, and C chords need to be shifted forward a little bit. like the G starts more around the words Year after year. This is an excellent song, and it reminds me of my friend, who also passed away recently.
