專輯: Afoot In The Door:The Best Of Pink Floyd
歌手:Pink Floyd (平克佛洛伊德)
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an offhand 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
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,
So 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;
Plans that either come to naught
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I'd something more to say.
I like to be here
When I can
When I come home
Cold and tired
It's good to warm my bones
Beside the fire
Across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell
