The song Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd written by Roger Waters and David Gilmore holds a special place in my coping with my son’s SZ.
“Lyrically, the song is often considered to be a direct tribute to Syd Barrett (a founding member of Pink Floyd thought have developed Schizophrenia in his 20’s). However, on the documentary The Story of Wish You Were Here, Gilmour and Waters separately describe the original concept that differs from this interpretation. Waters, who mainly wrote the lyrics complementing Gilmour’s initial riff idea and subsequent joint composition, describes the lyrics as being directed at himself, as his lyrics often are. Being present in one’s own life and freeing one’s self in order to truly experience life is a main topic in this song. Gilmour, on the other hand, recognizes that he does not ever perform the song without remembering Syd Barrett. Waters later adds that the song is nevertheless open to interpretation.”
