emeraldheartlight.comA musical interlude is well overdue here at the BLOG so it is an honour to present … David Gilmour, Rick Wright, Nick Mason and Candy Dulfer.  This particular track, performed at Knebworth back in 1990 has always been a favourite of mine.  A classic of its time and an ideal track, I feel, to kick off the first quarter of 2013.

Enjoy !

A Happy New Era to you.

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!
