    "A Great Day For Freedom" Lyrics

    David Gilmour

    (Gilmour / Samson)

    On the day the wall came down
    They threw the locks onto the ground
    And with glasses high we raised a cry for freedom had arrived
    On the day the wall came down
    The Ship of Fools had finally ran aground
    Promises lit up the night light doves in flight

    I dreamed you had left my side
    No warmth, not even pride remained
    And even though you needed me

    It was clear that I could not do a thing for you

    Not life devalues day by day
    As friends and neighbors turn away
    And there's a change that, even with regret, cannot be undone
    Now frontiers shift like desert sands
    While nations wash their bloodied hands
    Of loyalty, of history, in shades of grey

    I woke to the sound of drums
    The music played, the morning sun streamed in
    I turned and I looked at you
    And all but the bitter residues slipped away...slipped away
