Best Lyrics Ever From A Floyd Song - Comfortably Numb

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye.
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown,
The dream is gone.

Leng2012, I totally understand... but don't let your past affect your future...don't let failure and disappointment turn into that hopeless feeling...keep plodding on; shrug it off and keep going!!

This song always hits home; rushed thru my younger years without realizing what's happening. Or, on the other end, taking life lightly. Believing in short cuts, when I found out there is none, whether I rushed thru or taking my sweet time; the child is grown the dream is gone....the madness kept repeating over and over till....I've become comfortably disappointment, failure, hopelessness...

Brilliant, one of their best

Magnificent lyrics. Its my favorite Pink Floyd song :)

I have become comfortably numb.
