Shine on You Crazy Diamond
Pink Floyd Lyrics


Nobody knows where you are
How near or how far
Shine on you crazy diamond
Pile on many more layers
And I'll be joining you there
Shine on you crazy diamond
And we'll bask in the shadow
Of yesterday's triumph
And sail on the steel breeze
Come on you boy child
You winner and loser
Come on you miner for truth, for delusion, and shine!

I read the news today, oh boy
About a lucky man who made the grade
And though the news was rather sad
Well, I just had to laugh
I saw the photograph

He blew his mind out in a car
He didn't notice that the lights had changed
A crowd of people stood and stared
They'd seen his face before
Nobody was really sure if he was from the House of Lords

I saw a film today, oh boy
The English Army had just won the war
A crowd of people turned away
But I just had to look
Having read the book
I'd love to turn you on

Woke up, fell out of bed
Dragged a comb across my head
Found my way downstairs and drank a cup
And looking up, I noticed I was late
Found my coat and grabbed my hat
Made the bus in seconds flat
Found my way upstairs and had a smoke
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream

I read the news today, oh boy
Four thousand holes in Blackburn, Lancashire
And though the holes were rather small
They had to count them all
Now they know how many holes it takes to fill the Albert Hall
I'd love to turn you on

@Cricket England Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup
They slither wildly as they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my opened mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva, om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes
They call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letterbox they
They tumble blindly as they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva, om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life are ringing
Through my open ears inciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva, om
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world
Nothing's gonna change my world

Jai guru deva

Remember when you were young
You shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there’s a look in your eyes
Like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the cross fire
of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter
Come on you stranger, you legend, you martyr, and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon.
You cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night,
and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome
with random precision,
rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions,
come on you painter,
you piper, you prisoner, and shine!

Nobody knows where you are,
how near or how far.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Pile on many more layers
and I’ll be joining you there.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
And we’ll bask in the shadow
of yesterday’s triumph, sail on the steel breeze.
Come on you boy child, you winner and loser,
come on you miner for truth and delusion, and shine!

My dad passed away 5/12/2021 after a long battle with COPD and heart Disease. This song has always reminded me of him especially these last few years. He loved Pink Floyd

“Remember when you were young? You shone like the sun.

Now there’s a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.

Nobody knows where you are. How near or how far.

Shine on you crazy diamond.”

I truly hope wherever you are now dad, it’s amazing as you hoped it’d be. Love you man 💙

This was one of my father's favorite songs, He passed away a few weeks ago.
We played it to him while on his deathbed, at the last moments of his full consciousness, we farewelled him one last time before he continued his battle unconscious under morphine.
I never thought id lose him at that particular moment..
Shine on dad, I love you
