The Division Bell Remastered, 2011

HIGH HOPES
(Music: David Gilmour – Lyrics: David Gilmour, polly Samson)

Beyond the horizon of the place
We lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly
The ringing of the division bell had begun

Along the Long Road and
On down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut

There was a ragged band that
Followed in our footsteps
Running before time took
Our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures
Trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder

Looking beyond the embers
Of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green
It was on the other side

Steps taken forwards but
Sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force
Of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights
Of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There’s a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road
We’ve been so many times

The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river

Forever and ever
