♫♫ Breathe ♫♫

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don't be afraid to care
Leave but don't leave me
Look around, choose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all your touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be
Run, rabbit run
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don't sit down, it's time to dig another one
For long you live and high you fly
But only if you ride the tide
And balanced on the biggest wave
You race towards an early grave

As I was rising from the depths of sleep, breathe was "playing" in my head. Then I thought of the background spoken line on great gig in the sky

And I am not frightened of dying
Any time will do, I don't mind
Why should I be frightened of dying?
There's no reason for it, you've gotta go sometime
If you can hear this whispering you are dying

Which led me to find this interesting video with all the background voices, explained and the people that spoke them:

Here's the youtube link>>>  HERE << < under the video hit "show more" it gives info on all the background spoken voices.

  1. Paraphrasing - I hope I can still recall those lines:

    And you run and you run
    To catch up with the sun
    But it’s sinking
    Racing around
    To come up behind you again
    Sun is the same in a relative way
    But you’re older
    Shorter of breath
    An one day closer to death
    Every year is getting shorter
    Never seem to find the time
    Plans that (can’t remember the phrase)
    Or half a page of scribbled lines
    The time is gone
    The song is over
    Thought I’ve something more to say...

    Dunno how many times I listened to that album when I was a schoolboy.
