Lyrics - David Gilmour / Nick Mason
Roger Waters / Richard Wright

Music - David Gilmour / Nick Mason
Roger Waters / Richard Wright


Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rollin' waves
in labrinyths of coral caves
The echo of the distant time
comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine

And no one children stood in line
And no one knows the where or whys
And something stirs and something tries
And starts to climb towards the light

Strangers passing in the street
by chance to seperate glancesmeet
And I am you and what I see is me
Do I take you by the hand
and lead you through the land
And help me understand the best I can

And no one calls us to move on
And no one forces down our eyes
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun

Cloudless everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall,
comes streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

No one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.
