25 Songs, 25 days. Day 4 Pink Floyd – Shine on you crazy Diamond


25-songs-blog-challenge4

 

Ok, a song that calms me down, are you kidding me? This is by far the easiest choice on the list. This can only be this song. This masterpiece, the best song ever written by the best band that will ever exist. I will not lie, I can NOT listen to this music without having something “special” to smoke. When I die this is my funeral music. I am typing this post listening to it while the butterflies fly in my stomach. This song makes me happy and it makes me sad, it gives me goose bumps, makes me laugh and make me cry, this song is the only song in the world that is better to me then sex. Ladies and Gentlepeople I present to you the greatest show on earth, the best song ever written.

Pink Floyd: Shine on you crazy diamond part I – IX 

Remember when you were young,
You shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there’s a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire
Of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter,
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon,
You cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night,
And exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome
With random precision,
Rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
Come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Nobody knows where you are,
How near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers
And I’ll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we’ll bask in the shadow
Of yesterday’s triumph,
And sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child,
You winner and loser,
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!
