PINK FLOYD : COMFORTABLY NUMB [SONGS OF CHILDHOOD NOSTALGIA]

Mετά τα δύο αριστουργηματάκια των Pink Floyd, που ανέβασε ο Oannes, κι ένα τρίτο από μένα. Ενα κομμάτι που τόσα χρόνια αργότερα, με συγκινεί το ίδιο. Comfortably Numb από το The Wall, 1979. [από το άλμπουμ και από το Live 8 στο Hyde Park το 2005]

Following Oannes two gems by Pink Floyd, here’s a third one from me. A song that moves me the same way as it did when I first heard it. Comfortably Numb from The Wall, 1979. [album version and at Live 8 in Hyde Park in 2005]


Hello? Hello? Hello?
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me
Is there anyone at home?
Come on now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again
Relax
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb
Okay
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more, ah
But you may feel a little sick
Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on it’s time to go
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb
