Poles Apart


Muziek: David Gilmour
Lyrics: David Gilmour, Polly Samson, Laird-Clowes
Zang: Gilmour

De teksten gaan over ex-bandlid Syd Barrett in het eerste vers, en Roger Waters in het tweede, volgens mede-auteur Polly Samson.

Als zodanig, het tweede couplet begint met de woorden: “Hey You”, de titel van een door Roger Waters geschreven lied van Pink Floyd’s eerdere album, The Wall.

Terug te vinden op:

The Division Bell


Did you know … it was all going to go so wrong for you
And did you see it was all going to be so right for me
Why did we tell you then
You were always the golden boy boy then
And that you’d never lose that light in your eyes

Hey you … did you ever realise what you’d become
And did you see it wasn’t only me you were running from
Did you know all the time but it never bothered you anyway
Leading the blind while I stared out the steel in your eyes

The Rain fell slow, down on all the roofs of uncertainty
I thought of you and the years
and all the sadness fell away from me
And did you know …

I never thought that you’d lose that light in your eyes
