Song Lyric Sunday: Happy Memory – ‘Remember A Day’

This week, Helen at This Thing Called Life One Word At A Time has challenged us to post a set of song lyrics that ‘surrounds a happy memory’. I suppose you could take this one of two ways: either a song that holds links to a personal happy memory (so could, theoretically, be about anything) or one that is less specific.

I think my choice actually covers both options – and it also allows me to post this little gem, written by keyboard player Richard Wright, from Pink Floyd’s 1968 album ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’.

It must be years since I heard this, but the prompt immediately reminded me of it – so that’s a personal happy memory too.

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young.
Free to play alone with time
Evening never came.
Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen – you shall be it if you wish
Look for your king

Why can’t we play today
Why can’t we stay that way

Climb your favorite apple tree
Try to catch the sun
Hide from your little brother’s gun
Dream yourself away

Why can’t we reach the sun
Why can’t we blow the years away
Blow away
Blow away

Lyrics by Richard Wright
