Time


pink floyd, time

Music and lyrics Pink Floyd

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a peice of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine
staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and
there is time to kill today
And then one day you find
ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run,
you missed the starting gun

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a realative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter,
never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught
or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation
is the English way
The time has gone, the song is over,
thought I'd something more to say

Mother


pink floyd, podcast, the-wall

Music and lyrics Pink Floyd

  • Mother
Mother do you think they'll drop the bomb?
mother do you think they'll like this song?
mother do you think they'll try to break my balls?
mother should i build the wall?

mother should i run for president?
mother should i trust the government?
mother will they put me in the firing line?
mother am i really dying?

Hush now baby, baby, dont you cry.
mother's gonna make all your nightmares come true.
mother's gonna put all her fears into you.
mother's gonna keep you right here under her wing.
she wont let you fly, but she might let you sing.
mama will keep baby cozy and warm.
ooooh baby ooooh baby oooooh baby,
of course mama'll help to build the wall.

Mother do you think she's good enough -- to me?
mother do you think she's dangerous -- to me?
mother will she tear your little boy apart?
mother will she break my heart?

Hush now baby, baby dont you cry.
mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
mama wont let anyone dirty get through.
mama's gonna wait up until you get in.
mama will always find out where you've been.
mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean.
ooooh baby oooh baby oooh baby,
you'll always be baby to me.
Mother, did it need to be so high?

Wish You Were Here


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.
What have we found
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.
