Pink Floyd Lyrics - Album: UmmaGumma [1969]

Grantchester Meadows.


Icy wind of night be gone, this is not your domain

In the sky a bird was heard to cry

Misty morning whisperings and gentle stirring sounds

Be like the deathly silence that lay all around

Hear the knock and hearten

To the barking of the dog fox

Gone to ground

See the splashing of the kingfisher

Flashing through the water

And the river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees

Laughing as it passes through the endless summer

Making for the sea

In the lazy watermeadow I lay me down

All around me golden sunflakes settle on the ground

Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon

Bringing sounds of yesterday into the city room

In the lazy watermeadow I lay me down

All around me golden sunflakes covering the ground

Basking in the sunshine of a bygone afternoon

Bringing sounds of yesterday into my city room.

The Narrow Way.


Flowing in the path

As it leads toward the darkness in the north

Weary stranger's faces show their sympathy

They've seen that home before

If you wanna stay for a little bit

Rest your aching limbs for a little bit

Before you can find his private room

And you can't delay

Hear the nightbirds calling him

To care and catch the words to say

Close by in the nightmare of your brain

Misty swelling creatures crawling

Hear the roar get louder in your ears

You know the volume as you're on the force

Behind can't conquer all your fears

All your birds aren't really listening

Tell them there is life with every morning

Perhaps today you can when you answer me

It's clear, it's all nights warning
