High Hopes...

Floydy zná asi většina návštěvníků těchto stránek. A někteří je dokonce i poslouchají. Takže tyhle písničky asi nebudou žádnou převratnou novinkou a ač sem samotné písničky dávám jen nerada, tyhle jsou teď hodně aktuální. Mají tu své místo. A to i přesto, že léto má být veselé. Bylo. Není. Bude.
High Hopes
Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The night of wonder

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we've been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder

With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever
Hey You
Hey you out there in the cold
Getting lonely, getting old, can you feel me

Hey you standing in the aisles
with itchy feet and fading smiles, can you feel me
Hey you don't help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight

Hey you out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone would you touch me
Hey you with your ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call on would you touch me
Hey you would you help me to carry the stone
Open your heart I am coming home

But it was only fantasy
The wall was too high,
as you can see

No matter how he tried
he could not break free
And the worms ate into his brain

Hey you out there on the road
Doing what you're told,can you help me
Hey you out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall, can you help me
Hey you don't tell me there's no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall.
