Shine on You Crazy Diamond
by Pink Floyd



Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts I -II-III-IV-V)

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 cross-fire
Of childhood and stardom
Blown on the steel breeze
Come on you target for far away 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!


Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Parts VI-VII-VIII-IX)

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 shadows
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!


From the L.P., "Wish You Were Here", 1975 by Pink Floyd
