Making the shape of his question to Heaven
Whether the sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?”

Resting my mind
And I’ll never pine
For the sad days and the bad days
When we were workin’ from nine to five.”

“Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a pat on the back.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.

‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’ are standout tracks. ‘Comfortably Numb’ is another one. ‘High Hopes’ from ‘The Division Bell’ is one of my favorite all-time Pink Floyd tracks. ‘The Great Gig in the Sky,’ ‘Echoes,’ there’s lot of them. David Gilmour

I can’t help other people’s frustrations. I don’t owe people anything. If people would like to come to my concerts, I’d love them to come. And if they like the music that I make, I love that, too. But I do not make music for other people. I make it to please myself. David Gilmour
