Song Lyric Sunday: C’est la vie – ‘Coming Back to Life’

The broad theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week could be described as the ‘circle of life’.

This is a song about moving on in life – life goes on: until it doesn’t.

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

Written by David Gilmour
