Remember when you were young? 
You shone like the sun. 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
Now there's a look in your eyes 
Like black holes in the sky 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
You were caught in the crossfire 
Of childhood and stardom, 
Blown on the steel breeze 
Come on you target 
for faraway laughter; 
Come on you stranger, you legend, 
You martyr, and shine 

You reached for the secret 
too soon 
You cried for the moon 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
Threatened by shadows at night 
And exposed in the light 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
Well, you wore out your welcome 
With random precision 
Rode on the steel breeze 
Come on you raver, you seer of visions; 
Come on you painter, you piper, 
You prisoner, and shine 

Nobody knows where you are, 
How near or how far 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
Pile on many 
more layers 
And I'll be joining you there 
Shine on, you crazy diamond 
And we'll bask in the shadow 
Of yesterday's triumph 
And sail on the steel breeze 
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser, 
Come on you miner for truth and delusion, 
And shine.
