My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

August 27, 2010 “Coming Back To Life”

Friday is my day off from writing, so I offer you this song/poem by David Gilmour.

I was going through a very difficult time a few years ago and this song was both inspirational and comforting to me, as I hope it will be to some of you. I promise it will be 6 1/2 minutes well spent.

This is for you, Angel…

“Coming Back To Life”

where were you
when I was burned and broken
while the days slipped by
from my window watching
where were you
when I was hurt
and I was helpless
because the things you say
and the things you do
surround me
while you were hanging yourself
on someone elses words
dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight
into the shining sun
lost in thought
and lost in time
while the seeds of life
and the seeds of change
were planted
outside the rain
fell dark and slow
while I pondered on
this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
for killing the past
and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
and headed straight…into the shining sun

(All words by David Gilmour)

  2. Pink Floyd is my FAVORITE !!!! And this track, along with High Hopes (both from their album The Division Bell) are my all time favorites!
    In fact, I was humming this song about an hour before I saw your post, and was quite shocked actually (pleasantly ofcourse), when I saw it!!!
    I have written poems on them!!! Good God!!

    Whoever you are dedicating this track to, will love it!

    Have a great weekend, Tracy..

      • yaaaayyyy … all of last evening, I was listening to high hopes, and coming back to life!!! Actually, the entire Division Bell, in a loop! 🙂 In 2002, Roger Waters had done a tour, called In The Flesh.. and my husband and I had been to the concert… we were in India back then… and a few months back, I had written a poem on that tour thingie!!! 🙂
