Hungry Lucy Wish You Were Here Lyrics

[Wyclef Jean]
Lets go
So 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 fair
do you think you can tell
Did they get you to trade
your heros for goals
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 the game
whether you listenin to hip hip-hop
or you tuning to rock
refugees on your box
we gonna take over ya blocks
lets go
How I wish, how I wish you were here
We're jus two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl year after year
Runnin over the same old ground
But have we found the same old fears
Wish you were here
whether you listenin to rock
or pumpin the hip hip hop
refugees on your box
Critics don't mistake this for just any cover tune
I'ma take y'all to the "Dark Side of the Moon"
Kickin in my moms room this song was just a thought
A young refugee labeled, jus come with a passport
Dad used to tell me about the American dream
My dream was waking up the projects
A young teen listenin to hip-hop, my brother tuned me into rock
Put me up on Pink Floyd, a band from the British blocks
whether you pumpin the hip hip hop
or you tuning to rock
refugees on your box
we gonna take over the blocks
from n.j to bk to the u.k
