Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond

Video: https://youtu.be/_c8H5EE8PVA

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 in 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.
