On an Island
David Gilmour Lyrics


Remember that night
White steps in the moonlight
They walked here too
Through empty playground, this ghosts' town
Children again, on rusting swings getting higher
Sharing a dream, on an island, it felt right

We lay side by side
Between the moon and the tide
Mapping the stars for a while

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you

Remember that night
The warmth and the laughter
Candles burned
Though the church was deserted
At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbor
Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you.

Remember that night

White steps in the moonlight

They walked here too

Through empty playground, this ghosts' town

Children again, on rusting swings getting higher

Sharing a dream, on an Island, it felt right



We lay side by side

Between the moon and the tide

Mapping the stars for a while



Let the night surround you

We're halfway to the stars

Ebb and flow

Let it go

Feel her warmth beside you



Remember that night

The warmth and the laughter

Candles burned

Though the church was deserted

At dawn we went down through empty streets to the harbour

Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after



Let the night surround you

We're halfway to the stars

Ebb and flow

Let it go

Feel her warmth beside you

Remember that night
White steps in the moonlight
They walked here too
Through empty playground, this ghosts town
Children again, on rusting swings getting higher
Sharing a dream, on an island, it felt right

We lay side by side
Between the moon and the tide
Mapping the stars for a while

Let the night surround you
We're halfway to the stars
Ebb and flow
Let it go
Feel her warmth beside you

Remember that night
The warmth and the laughter
Candles burned
Though the church was deserted
At dawn we went down
Through empty streets to the harbour
Dreamers may leave, but they're here ever after

Waters had great ideas and Gilmour made those great ideas sound pretty. Personally, I think they need each other musically.

I dont think they need each other, is more like they complete one another. But they are also great doing solo.

That musical tension was what made Floyd great. Dave needed Roger's fire, while Roger needed Dave's more emotive aspect. Another band that thrived on that tension was The Police.
