MyJukebox: Pink Floyd - On The Turning Away [1987 - UK single]

Pink Floyd
On The Turning Away
[1987/12/14 - UK single]

Uma das faixas mais adoráveis do álbum "A Momentary Lapse of Reason" (1987), que assinalou o regresso da banda sem Roger Waters e aos comandos de David Gilmour (depois de uma longa batalha pelos tribunais - mais aqui).
Em certa medida, é uma canção com parentesco na "Confortably Numb" do álbum "The Wall", constituindo-se assim como uma canção romântica ou uma balada em estilo Pink Floyd.

"On The Turning Away" (ao vivo - tour de 1987/88)


On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we wont understand
Don't accept that whats happening
Is just a case of others suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away

Its a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting its shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that were all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
Its not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away
