AGAINST THE ODDS

Richard Wright 1978

Lyrics/Music: Wright

Albums:

Wet Dream

Each time we return
To this crazy place
We break the promise made, face to face

Easy to make
Easy to break
Something's here we don't understand

I don't know
Why we go on so
I don't want to fight no more tonight

Every time's the same
Both of us to blame
I don't want to talk no more tonight

We've gone through this before
Now we ask for more
Seems to me we can't escape at all

Words have no meaning
To hold such a feeling
Can there be a way out of here

I don't know
Why we go on so
I don't want to fight no more tonight

Every time's the same
Both of us to blame
I don't want to talk no more tonight

SUMMER ELEGY

Richard Wright 1978

Lyrics/Music: Wright

Albums:

Wet Dream

Something's gotta give
We can't carry on like this
One year on and more unsure
Where do we go from here?
Many nights and many days
I've spent with you
Talking about what we should do
I can't say
Nothing's clear to me no more

One more sleepless night
And another wasted day
This song has no end
Too many words fill my mind
You gave so much too soon
No longer sure where you want to be
Turn around
See what you have found

Let's drink to absent friends
How they cared, and all they shared
We took our life to the edge
They still try to understand
Time is running out
You're going down
Come on, let's go wherever they may be
Make a choice
Stay behind or follow me

HOLIDAY

Richard Wright 1978

Lyrics/Music: Wright

Albums:

Wet Dream

It was meant to be a holiday
Building castles by the sea
Another way to live for you and me
Time to pause, consider what we've done
The wind is blowing, so come,
Let's take a holiday

How was I to know quite so soon
That dreams can turn a life,
Around it seems
There is no single way to live our days
Between these lines I know you see a man
Who's not quite sure who he is
Or where he stands

Sail on
Sail on, across the sea
Ride the waves, feel the breeze
Sail on
There's no other way I'd rather be

Destiny, reality are just a dream
Raise the sails, the wind is free
Every day I become more confused
Which way to go, how to choose

Back at home, what holds me here
Shut in not moving, only half a life
Clouds hang heavy, they leave me cold
It doesn't have to be this way
The wind is blowing, so come,
Let's take a holiday

Sail on
Sail on, across the sea
Ride the waves, feel the breeze
Sail on
There's no other way I'd rather be

Sail on
Sail on, across the sea
Ride the waves, feel the breeze
Sail on
There's no other way I'd rather be

Sail on
Sail on
Sail on
Sail on
There's no other way I'd rather be

Sail on
Sail on

PINK'S SONG

Richard Wright 1978

Music: Wright
Lyrics: Juliette Wright

Albums:

Wet Dream

Quiet, smiling friend of mine
Thrown into our lives
You gave everything you could
Saw through our disguise

I had to stay I could not leave
Give me time so I can breathe
Give me time to be at ease

Patiently, you watched us play
Parts you'd seen before
Even then, we sometimes asked
What you keep us for

Caught between the tangled web
You helped set us free
Sadly, then, you lost yourself
So you had to leave

And I must go, be on my way
Let me go, I can not stay
Let me go, I must not stay

And I must go, be on my way
Let me go, I cannot stay
Let me go, I must not stay
