My Daily Song: Pink Floyd


Probably my third all time favorite band behind Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, this is my favorite Pink Floyd tune.

Hey You

Hey you out there in the cold
Getting lonely getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you don’t help them to bury the light
Don’t give in without a fight

Hey you out there on your own
Sitting naked by the phone
Would you touch me?
Hey you with you ear against the wall
Waiting for someone to call out
Would you touch me?
Hey you, would you help me to carry the stone?
Open your heart, I’m coming home

But it was only fantasy
The wall was too high
As you can see
No matter how he tried
He could not break free
And the worms ate into his brain

Hey you, out there on the road
Always doing what you’re told
Can you help me?
Hey you, out there beyond the wall
Breaking bottles in the hall
Can you help me?
Hey you, don’t tell me there’s no hope at all
Together we stand, divided we fall

  1. I don’t know much about Led Zeppelin but your post made me do some research that instantly made me think they make have been marketing geniuses without knowing. I loved the act that “The band’s first three albums were named simply Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II and Led Zeppelin III. While the fourth is widely referred to as IV, it actually doesn’t have a name. “After all we’d accomplished, the press was still calling us a hype,” Jimmy Page explained, “So that is why the fourth album was untitled.” The decision infuriated the band’s label and confused fans.” I ask you if there is a need to titles and if so what does that say about the audiences ability to genuinely connect?

    1. Jimmy Page was known to be a marketing genius and “zoso” as it also came to be known because of the 4 symbols was his greatest plot. Not having a title generated so much hype, particularly the symbols and what people thought they meant. As far as albums I’m not sure titles are relevant. As far as poetry I like to take some words out of each poem and use them as titles. For me the audiencev”gets it” when they read the words in the poem that are actually the title

  2. I love this song too…and grew up on pink Floyd. This is the first time I’ve heard this song for a good while…it reminds me of my childhood and my family who are no longer in my life…music takes me straight back. I know I can’t avoid reminders forever which is why I am listening to this now. I also love eclipse.

    1. You are not alone in this. We can share that pain together, as writers we bleed on the page and the music we hear reminds us of why we are alive and why we write what and as we do! I just read one of your posts and find we share some stuff in common, if I daresay. Be well.

          1. Yep English 😊 I have lots of American blog friends. I like Americans. You are a friendly articulate expressive race. That’s my sweeping generalisation out of the way πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

                  1. I’m in tears about my mental health and ptsd. I make mistakes in writing when I’m dissociated as I don’t concentrate then feel ashamed when i realise I’ve written not what I intended. I get frustrated with my brain not functioning properly. I’m going offline for a bit as I’m not in a good place emotionally. I’m a mess today. Sorry you got a bit tangled up in my mess. πŸ˜”

                    1. That’s ok. Sometimes it’s just good to throw words onto the page and just be good with it. Just let yourself write what you are writing. None of us is getting a Nobel Prize for Literature any time soon. It will be ok. Trust me, you’re not the first–nor won’t be the last–person suffering in my presence. It will all work out
