Lyrics

Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun

@jokypas not me! You're talking to a 21st century kid!
born in 1977. love the Floyd.
My favorite song.

The Brit Floyd recommendati o n is dead-on. Unless Rick comes back from the dead and PG reunites, you simply won't get a truer PF experience. Been to two shows in the past two years and going to a third in a few months and without question it's the best money I've ever spent for a concert experience.

BET MOST OF US WERE BORN 1960's Eh?

Long live pink floyd!
One of my fav's
Oh time, how i loathe thee...=(
What is it wIth Pandora and Fleetwood Mac? They get more playing time on my Pink Floyd station than Pink Floyd.I recently attended a Fleetwood Mac concert in Sacramento and it was great, but they are not Pink Floyd
If you get a chance check out Brit Floyd
Eery like ghosts of Xmas past
Completely unforgettabl e
Melancholic melody lyrics beyond and before
Jesus, I cry every time I hear this song. I just can't help it ;_;
They saved one of the best songs for last. Great work David.
still got all that magic Roger its like my fist and my girl.I might want you but I dont need you, and its sad that you had to find out like this.Top three bands in my book
Best ever
Lovely way to close it out.. Brilliant group...

So much emotion. That solo at the end is so awesome. Brings tears to my eyes every time. Best version is Live in Gdansk.
Great track. One of my favorites
running before times took our dreams away
High Hopes leaves me speechless every time. A fitting finale to Pink Floyd -- the last song on their last album is one of their best ever.

Check this song out on Gilmour's Live in Gdansk album. It will blow you away.

Cannot get enough Pink!!!

I agree 100% with David Shadow!

Pink Floyd is sacred / church music to ma. Wish You Were Here played on a tape recorder, brought me out of a COMA! Oh, yes, Pink Floyd is a rather unique & can be heard in altered states of conscienecne s s as well, For Sure!! ~ peace ~ Lets Keep Talking Too!
What a beautiful track, as nearly all Floyd tracks are, but I don't think this one gets played or heard quite as often as others.
Still the most moving number on Pulse. Awesome, and played VERY loud in my car ...

"...a world of magnets and miracles." Pahahahahaha h a !
Lashed by whip from a King/Queen dom of lies.
The majory are unhappy and unsatisfied. Dream of the greener
grass and freedom. It will not arise from a plate full
of NATO lies.

I heard this song before somewhere but i never knew it was pink floyd (only the piano was playing in the background) im glad its Floyd though. Because the lyrics go so well with the song. :)
If you like this song, listen to the Live Version of it from the Pulse album. It will blow you away. So much more powerful.

Gilmour is so incredibly underrated. Yes Waters is Pink and the mastermind behind all their best albums but Gilmour is the sound of PF, and when Rogers tours he needs 4/5 people to replace Dave
groesbeck1
Very haunting and beautiful at the same time.
Got all the elements of a PF classic. Michael Kamen's orchestratio n gives a special note to this swan song.
llama5alpaca
Perfect song for the Floyd to end their last studio album with, a truly beautiful composition
Amazing work indeed from Rick, Dave, and Nick
it needs to play sample a lot longer, it's a good song
allergic2rap 7
god pink floyd is amazing
I think this may be in the top three of PF songs ever and really makes you ponder which road you will take in the afterlife.
umphreyjd
killer steel on this one...best written guitar solo ever!!!
mikejoefay
Awesome indeed!!
Hard not to listen to this without turning up the volume. Great track.
bumberger1
best song ever
