Time (including Breathe Reprise)

Time (including Breathe Reprise)  7:05
     (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
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

Tired of lying in the sunshine, 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

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same, in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath, and one day closer to death

Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

Breathe Reprise 1:11
Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones beside the fire

And far away across the fields
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell

Roger Waters: "I spent an awful lot of my life — until I was about twenty-eight — waiting for my life to start. I though that at some point I would turn from a chrysalis into a butterfly, that my real life would begin. So if I had that bit of my life to live again, I would rather live the years between eighteen and twenty-eight knowing that that was it, that nothing was suddenly going to happen — that it was happening all the time. Time passes, and you are what you are, you do what you do." [Rolling Stone 16 Sep 82]

  1. Hello:

    I have a doubt:

    in the part "Tired of lying in the sunshine, staying home to watch for rain..." is Richard the singer...?
