High Hopes - Pink Floyd

"High Hopes"

Just last night while plugging in my songs this one came up and i felt elevated... the quality of music is just brilliant of Floyd. Gilmour, Roger, Syd together created something that is legend and that gets your thoughts to reality.... I dont really know how many Floyd fans visit me .... but still heres a sampling of what the brilliance means...

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 nights 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
