Wish You Were Here

Wish You Were Here cover

Utgitt:
UK: 15. september 1975
US: 12. september 1975

Info:

  • Dette albumet er en hyllest til Syd Barret, og retter også en kritikk mot musikkbransjen/plateindustrien.

5. juni 1975:
Bandet drev på med den siste finpussen av 'Shine on You Crazy Diamond' da en kraftig fyr med glattbarbert hode og øyenbryn kom spaserende inn. Ingen kjente han igjen med det første, men etterhvert fant de ut at det var Syd Barret. Før dette hadde ingen sett han på 7 år og ingen har sett han etter denne episoden heller.

Shine on You Crazy Diamond Parts I-V
Gilmour/Waters/Wright

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!

Welcome to the Machine
Waters

Welcome my son
welcome to the machine
Where have you been?
It's alright we know where you've been
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time
provided with toys and Scouting for Boys
You bought a guitar to punish your ma
And you didn't like school
and you know you're nobody's fool
So welcome to the machine

Welcome my son
welcome to the machine
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream
You dreamed of a big star
he played a mean guitar
He always ate in the Steak Bar
He loved to drive in his Jaguar
So welcome to the machine.

Have a Cigar
Waters

Come in here, dear boy, have a cigar
You're gonna go far, fly high
You're never gonna die,
you're gonna make it if you try
they're gonna love you

Well I've always had a deep respect
and I mean that most sincerely
The band is just fantastic
that is really what I think
Oh by the way, which one's Pink?
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train.

We're just knocked out
We heard about the sell out
You gotta get an album out
You owe it to the people
We're so happy we can hardly count
Everybody else is just green
have you seen the chart?
It's a helluva start
it could be made into a monster
if we all pull together as a team
And did we tell you the name of the game, boy
we call it Riding the Gravy Train

Wish You Were Here
Waters/Gilmour

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?

And did they get you to trade
your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And 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 you found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here

Shine on You Crazy Diamond Parts VI-IX
Waters/Wright/Gilmour

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
sail on the steel breeze
Come on you boy child
you winner and loser
come on you miner
for truth and delusion, and shine ...
