Oh, by the way, which one's Pink?


"The Nile Song", by Pink Floyd

I was standing by the Nile
When I saw the lady smile.
I would take her out for a while,
For a while.

Light tears wept like a child.
How her golden hair was blowing wild.
Then she spread her wings to fly,
For to fly.

Soaring high above the breezes,
Going always where she pleases.
She will make it to the island
In the sun.

I will follow in her shadow
As I watch her from my window.
One day I will catch her
Eye.

She is calling from the deep,
Summoning my soul to endless sleep.
She is bound to drag me down,
Drag me down.

(Roger Waters 1969)

I'm normally not in the habit of
plagiarizing classic rock bands, but
Pink Floyd has always stirred my
feelings in a way few other musical
groups have. Their earlier albums
are infused with fairie-fancy, some
heavy psychedelics, and a loose,
romantic flavor. Their writing and
music has spoken to me, so try some,
and maybe it will speak to you, too!

P.S. For all the die-hard fans
already out there, what is your
favorite Floyd track, and why?
This one seemed fitting for my
situation, only she's not a blond!

George Harrison (God rest his soul) wrote this in 1969. The word 'she' has been replaced by 'he.'

Something in the way he moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way he moves me
I don't want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

Somewhere in his smile he knows
That I don't need no other lover
Something in his style that shows me
Don't want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

You're asking me will our love grow
I don't know, I don't know
You stick around now it may show
I don't know, I don't know

Something in the way he moves
And all I have to do is think of him
Something in the things he shows me
I don't want to leave him now
You know I believe in how

(whispers to the west winds) My soul is happy.

"Lil"
