Echoes

One of the best compositions of pink floyd and the absolute feeling of psychedelia...try listening to it and everything is green and submarine :)

 

Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no-one called 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 everyday you fall upon my waking eyes
inviting and inciting me to rise
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning

And no-one sings me lullabies
And no-one makes me close my eyes
And so I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky

I'm sorry! :/ *bear hugs*<br />
<br />
I see, is echoes your favorite PF composition?<br />
<br />
Hmmm i dont think all of that applies to me but i can surely say PF is one of my fav bands, actually its like I listen to a lot of music and a lot of it keeps changing but PF always stays right there! <br />
<br />
Lol so you though of all that when you saw my name hehe?

Well I always watch the pompeii version, and it's just, Wright looks like my dad on that movie it's really amazing. Plus, I don't know the guitar solo is a bit better, though too bad it's cut in two.<br />
<br />
Well they got this topic that reminds me of your name: it's called:<br />
"you know you're a floydian if..." and it's actually funny there's some stuff in there like<br />
<br />
if.... you hear the intro of money each time someone says "money"<br />
if... you named your dog seamus<br />
if.. you DO know which one is pink<br />
Also, you're a true Floydian if you can tell all kinds of interesting facts about the band, but nobody wants to hear them<br />
<br />
it's actually funny, that's what I thought of when I saw your name :]

Floydian is a common word there so, I don't know... you could've invented it yourself as well of course :)

Yep it is awesome, like I said, true psychedelia! :D

One of the few of our age that likes the pink floyd. a true floydian I would say. This is one of my favourites, no matter how bad I feel, this song can always pull me out of it.

Awesome song one of my fav's from pink floyd!
