Song Lyric Sunday: Memories – ‘Remember A Day’

One of the themes for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is memories, which – appropriately enough – reminded me of this poignant ode to the all too brief innocence of childhood. From Pink Floyd’s 1968 ‘Saucerful Of Secrets’ album and written by keyboard player Richard Wright.

Remember a day before today
A day when you were young
Free to play along with time
Evening never comes

Sing a song that can’t be sung
Without the morning’s kiss
Queen you shall be 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
Remember
Remember

Written by Richard Wright
