Today's song of the day....

"On the Turning Away" by Pink Floyd. I'm shocked it didn't make it to Echoes, it's easily, easily, easily my favorite Pink Floyd song.

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

Good song!

Unforgettable Lemon, I'm sure the Shenandoah Valley is just beautiful today. I wish I was there! Drive around playing good music and appreciate a few mountain views for me! Thanks!

I love "On the Turning Away." It is one of my favorite songs by Pink Floyd. I saw them in concert in 1988 and it sounded great live.

P.S. Eddie is HOT!!
