Poles Apart

Poles Apart
     (written by Gilmour, Samson, Laird-Clowes)

Did you know
It was all going to go so wrong for you?
And did you see   Did you know? (echoed)
It was all going to be so right for me?
Why did we tell you then
You were always the golden boy then
And that you'd never lose that light in your eyes

Hey you
Did you ever realize what you'd become?
And did you see
That 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? (echoed)

* And I never thought that you'd lose that light in your eyes 

Did you know? (echoed)

Polly Samson (pictured left with David Gilmour) and Nick Laird-Clowes (of the band Dream Academy) helped on the lyrics for this song, which many have interpreted to be about Syd, Roger, or both.

Cluster One
What Do You Want from Me
Poles Apart
Great Day for Freedom, A
Wearing the Inside Out
Take It Back
Coming Back to Life
Keep Talking
Lost for Words
High Hopes
