“Most beautiful music of all times” slow’s award

I don’t know what I did that I never payed too much attention to Pink Floyd songs, but “Coming Back To Life” is surely one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard. Nice lyrics, right tempo, right everything, even being a song about a lost love. It is almost the perfect companion for “Def Leppard – Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad”: two different times of one non-mutual love. Even the rhythm of both seams to fit: “Have You Ever” is full of whistles and bells, strong guitars, almost gives you the impression of some despair; “Coming Back”, in other hand, have simple elements, and gives a feeling of relief.

Pink Floyd – Coming Back To Life

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
And where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun
