Shine On You Crazy Diamond Lyrics & Description


PINK FLOYD "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" of the Wish You Were Here album is is definitely one of most popular pieces, arguably their best! The song is so long it contains nine parts and lasts about thirteen minutes. It consists of musical chapters or phases, such as the keyboard intro played by Wright and then the guitar solos of Dave Gilmour then we get Dick Parry's saxophone playing.

This song is heavily built around the band's great friend and ex-band member Syd Barrett. You can tell by the lyrics such as "Remember when you were young?/You shone like the sun". Apart from that, personally Dave Gilmour's guitar says alot too through his soothing playing.

OK, Now over to...

Shine on You Crazy Diamond Lyrics

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 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

How more many more layers
Will there be drawn in you there
Shine on You crazy in Diamond

And we'll bask in the shadow
Of Yesterday's triumph
Sail on the steel breeze
Come on you butcher, you winner and loser, you miner of truth and delusion
And shine!
