"Wish You Were Here" - (Pink Floyd) Cover by #TheRunningMates #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #MissU #DayNight

Introduction:

“The silence isn't so bad, till I look at my hands and feel sad. Because the spaces between my fingers are right where yours fit perfectly.”
― Owl City,

My music selection tonight is a brilliant song titled "Wish You Were Here" -  which was originally released by Pink Floyd and this brilliant rendition by The Running Mates (2). 

More about this brilliant duet:

"The Running Mates are a contemporary acoustic duo made up of Julie and Spencer Broschard. The pair met in 2008 while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. The duo’s talents have opened doors to opportunities around the world including a cruise contract in Australia, a hotel residency in Bora Bora and many beautiful weddings, most recently in Reykjavik, Iceland. Wanting to reach a larger audience but not sure where to begin, the pair started a YouTube channel from their apartment. They covered many of their favorite songs including, “The Night We Met” by Lord Huron and “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac and sent them off into the world hoping to reach some listeners. They now have over fifty-five thousand subscribers and more than three million views. 

Julie and Spencer tied the knot in September of 2017, and they celebrated their 2 year anniversary with a little help from their fans in a lyric video for their original song, “Destiny.” All of their original music can be found on their website at https://therunningmates.com/ and anywhere music is streamed. 

Keep an eye out for new YouTube covers every other Monday and if you’d like to hire The Running Mates for your next event please send all inquiries to therunningmatesband@gmail.com"

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Wish You Were Here"(3)

Wish You Were Here
Pink Floyd
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 veil?
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
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 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
And how we found
The same old fears
Wish you were here
