Meddle Lyrics


Meddle

One Of These Days

One Of These Days, I’m going to cut you into little pieces.

A Pillow Of Winds

A cloud of eiderdown
Draws around me
Softening a sound.
Sleepy time, and I lie,
With my love by my side,
And she’s breathing low.
And the candle dies.

When night comes down
You lock the door.
The book falls to the floor.
As darkness falls
The waves roll by,
The seasons change
The wind is wry.

Now wakes the hour
Now sleeps the swan
Behold the dream
The dream is gone.
Green fields are calling
It’s falling, in a golden door.

And deep beneath the ground,
The early morning sounds,
And I go down.
Sleepy time, and I lie,
With my love by my side,
And she’s breathing low.

And I rise, like a bird,
In the haze, when the first rays
Touch the sky.
And the night wings die.

Fearless

You say the hill’s too steep to climb
Climb it.
You say you’d like to see me try
Climbing.

You pick the place and I’ll choose the time
And I’ll climb
That hill in my own way.
Just wait a while for the right day.
And as I rise above the tree lines and the clouds
I look down, in the sound of the things you said today.

Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd
Smiling.
Merciless the magistrate turns ’round
Frowning.

And who’s the fool who wears the crown?
And go down,
in your own way
And every day is the right day
And as you rise above the fear-lines in the crowd
You look down, in the sound of the faces in the crowd.

San Tropez

As I reach for a peach
Slide a rind down behind
The sofa in San Tropez.
Breakin’ a stick
with a brick on the sand.
Ridin’ a wave
In the wake of an old sedan.

Sleepin’ alone in the
Drone of the darkness,
Scratched by the sand that
Fell from my love,
Deep in my dreams and I
Still hear her callin’
“If you’re alone,
I’ll come home.”

Backward and homebound,
The pigeon, the dove,
Gone with the wind
And the rain, on an airplane.
Owning a home
With no silver spoon,
I’m drinking champagne
Like a good tycoon.

Sooner than wait for
A break in the weather,
I’ll gather my far-flung
Thoughts together.
Speeding away
On the wind to a new day.
And if you’re alone
I’ll come home.

And I pause for a while
By a country style
And listen to the things they say.
Diggin’ for gold
With a hoe in my hand.
Open a book
Take a look at the way things stand.

And you’re leading me down
To the place by the sea.
I hear your soft voice
Calling to me.
Making a date for
Later by phone
And if you’re alone
I’ll come home.

Seamus

I was in the kitchen,
Seamus, that’s the dog, was outside.
Well, I was in the kitchen,
Seamus, my old hound, was outside.
Well, the sun sinks slowly
But my old hound just sat right down and cried.

Echoes

Overhead the albatross
Hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
the echo of a distant tide
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

And no one showed us to the land
And no one knows the where’s or why’s.
but something stares and something tries
and starts to climb toward the light.

Strangers passing in the street
By chance two separate glances meet
And I am you and what I see is me.
And do I take you by the hand
And lead you through the land
And help me understand
The best I can.

And no one calles us to the land
And no one forces down our eyes.
No one speaks and no one tries
No one flies around the sun….

Cloudless everyday you fall
Upon my waking eyes,
Inviting and inciting me
To rise.
And through the window in the wall
Come streaming in on sunlight wings
A million bright ambassadors of morning.

And no one sings me lullabies
And no one makes me close my eyes
So I throw the windows wide
And call to you across the sky….
