Time (Eclipse)

Time (including Breathe Reprise)  7:36
     (written by Mason, Waters, Wright, Gilmour)

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
Staying home to watch for rain
And you are young and life is long, and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

(The rest of the lyrics in the song are identical to verses three and four on the album version.)

Breathe Reprise 1:06
(Lyrics are identical to the album version.)

Lead vocals on Time: Richard Wright and David Gilmour (except verse one, line three and verse three, lines one and two: Richard Wright only)
Lead vocals on Breathe Reprise: David Gilmour

Time here is similar to the album version, but noticeably slower and lacking the same energy and punch. Dave strums the chords slowly, creating an almost arpeggio sound, here as well as elsewhere in the song cycle (such as on Breathe). The cacophony of clocks from the beginning of the album cut are not present here; instead the song starts with Nick's rototoms representing the ticking of a clock.
