The working title of this track was 'Epic'. The final title was inspired by a newspaper article: a woman got a pacemaker with a nuclear device. Ron Geesin had a great influence on the 24 minute long track.


IF

Pink Floyd 1970

Lyrics/Music: Waters
Vocals by: Waters

Albums:

Atom Heart Mother

If I were a swan, I'd be gone
If I were a train, I'd be late
And if I were a good man, I'd talk with you
more often than I do

If I were to sleep, I could dream
If I were afraid, I could hide
If I go Insane,
please don't put your wires in my brain

If I were the moon, I'd be cool
If I were a book, I would bend
If I were a good man,
I'd understand the spaces between friends

If I were alone, I could cry
And if I were with you, I'd be home and dry
And if I go insane,
will you still let me join in with the game

If I were a swan, I'd be gone
If I were a train, I'd be late again
And if I were a good man, I'd talk with you
more often than I do


SUMMER '68

Pink Floyd 1970

Lyrics/Music: Wright
Vocals by: Wright

Albums:

Atom Heart Mother

Would you like to say something before you leave?
Perhaps you'd care to state exactly how you feel
We say goodbey before we've said hello
I hardly even like you
I shouldn't care at all
We met just six hours ago
The music was to loud
From your bed I came today and lost a bloody year
And I would like to know, how do you feel?
How do you feel?

Not a single word was said
They lied still without fears
Occasion'lly you showed a smile, but what was the need?
I felt the cold far too soon in a wind of ninetyfive
My friends are lying in the sun
I wish that I was there
Tomorrow brings another town
Another girl like you
Have you time before you leave to greet another man
Just let me know, how do you feel?
How do you feel?

Goodbey to you
Childish bangles too
I've had enough for one day

Film/Video:

Atom Heart Mother
Live in Gdansk

David Gilmour in Concert
Remember that night

When the fat old sun in the sky is falling
summer evening birds are calling
Summer's thunder time of year
The sound of music in my ears
Distant bells
New mown grass smells so sweet
By the river holding hands
Roll me up and lay me down
Sit, don't make a sound
Pick your feet up off the ground
And if you hear as the warm night falls
the silver sound from a time so strange
sing to me, sing to me

When the fat old sun in the sky is falling
summer evening birds are calling
Children's laughter in my ears
The last sunlight disappears
