Echoes Lyrics

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine
And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the wheres or whys
But something stirs and
Something tries
And starts to climb towards the light
Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me
And 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
And no one speaks
And no one tries
And no one flies around the sun
Cloudless every day you fall
Upon my waking eyes
Inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Comes streamin in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning
And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky.

They are the greatest!!!! They create an unique style of music.To my opinion their music is universal, and above all their music expresses our existenceand humanity.

Pink floyd are in my oppinion the greatest band that has ever existed and changed so many lives for the better. it is such a shame that there is no bands that can carry on what the floyd started.

Brilliant song, not only due to the power of the very original instrumentation and unique lyrics, but also from the strength and blend of the voices of David Gilmour and (the late) Richard Wright.

This is real music. Not continous sound like Linkin Park, Pink Floyd really mixes it up and every song is breath taking. Even Bike XD
