Album: Atom Heart Mother [1970]


If I were the swan, I'd be gone

If I were the train, I'd be late (again)

And if I were the good man

I'd talk with you more often than I do

If I were to sleep I could dream

If I were afraid I could hide

If I go insane

Please don't put your wires in my brain

If I were the moon, I'd be cool

If I were the rule, I would bend

If I were a good man

I'd understand the spaces between friends

If I were alone, I would cry

And if I were with you, I'd be home and dry

And if I go insane

Will you still let me join in with the game.

Summer '68

Would you like to say something before you leave

Perhaps you'd care to state exactly how you feel

We say goodbye before we've said hello

I hardly even like you, I shouldn't care at all

We met just six hours ago, the music was too loud

From your bed I came today and lost a bloody year

And I would like to know, how do you feel

How do you feel

Not a single word we've said, the lights stay without fears

Occasionaly you showed a smile but what was the need

I felt the cold far too soon in the world of ninety-five

My friends they're in the sun, I wish that I was there

Tomorrow brings another town, another girl like you

Have you time before you leave to greet another man

Just to let me know, how do you feel

How do you feel

Goodbye to you

Shall it bring girls due

I had a love for one day

Fat Old Sun

When that fat old sun in the sky is falling

Summer-evening birds are calling

Summer sun do you travel yet

The sound of music in my ears

Distant bells, new grown grass smells so sweet

By the river holding hands

You're old enough and lay me down

And if you see, don't make a sound

Pick your feet up off the ground

And if you hear as the warm night falls

The silver sound from a time so strange

Sing to me, sing to me

When that fat old sun in the sky is falling

Summer-evening birds are calling

Children's laughter in my ears

And then the sunlight disappears.
