On An Island (2006) – David Gilmour

On An Island

On An Island

è il terzo album pubblicato dal chitarrista dei Pink Floyd David Gilmour come solista. Particolarmente adatto a chi vuole apprezzare un’atmosfera sospesa e rilassata, l’opera rappresenta una calibrata fusione del progressive rock e del blues rock particolarmente care a Gilmour anche all’interno dei Pink Floyd.

2. On An Island Torna alla lista tracce

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 warmt 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

3. The Blue Torna alla lista tracce

Shameless sea
Aimlessly so blue
Midnight-moon shines for you

Still, marooned
Silence drifting through
Nowhere to choose
Just blue…

Ceaselessly
Star-crossed you and me
Save our souls
We’ll be forever blue

Waves roll
Lift us in blue
Drift us
Seep right through
And colour us blue

Wait for me
Shameless you, the sea
Soon, the Blue
So soon…

4. Take A Breath Torna alla lista tracce

Take a breath
Take a deep breath now
Take a breath
A deep breath now
Take a breath

When you’re down is where you find yourself
When you drown there’s nothing else
If you’re lost you’ll need to turn yourself
The you’ll find that there’s no-one else

To make the moves that you can do
When you fall from grace your eyes in blue
Your every breath becomes another world
And the far horizon’s living hell

Take a breath
A deep breath now

This kind of love is hard to find
I never got to you by being kind
If I’m teh one to throw you overboard
At least I showed you how to swim for shore

When you’re down is where you’ll know yourself
That if you drown there’s nothing else
When you’re lost you need to find yourself
Then you’ll find out that there’s no-one else

6. This Heaven Torna alla lista tracce

All the pieces fall into place
When we walk these fields
And I reach out and touch your face
This earthly heaven is enough for me

So break the bread and pour the wine
I Need no blessings but I ‘m counting mine
Life is much more than money buys
When I see the faith in my children’s eyes

I’ve felt the power in a holy place
Wished for comfort when in need
Now I’m here in a state of grace
This earthly heaven is enough for me

So break the bread and pour the wine
I need no blessings but I’m counting mine
Life is much more than money buys
When I see the faith in my children’s eyes

7. Then I Close My Eyes Torna alla lista tracce

[Strumentale]

8. Smile Torna alla lista tracce

Would this do to make it all right
While sleep has taken you where I’m out of sight

I’ll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find my way home to your smile

Wasting days and days on this fight
Always down, and up half the night
Hopeless to reminisce through the dark hours
We’ll only sacrifice what time will allow us
You’re sighing…

All alone though you’re right here
How it’s time to go from your sad stars

I’ll make my getaway
Time on my own
Leaving’s a better way
To find my way home to your smile

9. A Pocketful Of Stones Torna alla lista tracce

He’s sending stones skimming and flying
Circles spinning out his time
Though the eart is dying his head is in the stars
Chances are this spark’s a lifetime

Out of touch he’ll live in wonder
Won’t lose sleep he’ll just pretend
In his world he won’t go under

Rivers run dry but there’s no line on his brow
Says he doesn’t care who is saved
It’s just the dice you roll, the here and now
And he’s not guilty or afraid

One day he’ll slip away
Cool water flowing all around
In the river and on the ground
Leave a pocketful of stones and not believe in other lives

Until then he’ll live in wonder
he won’t fight or comprehend
In his world he won’t go under
Turns without him until the end

10. Where We StartTorna alla lista tracce

Where we start is where we end
We step out sweetly, nothing planned
Along by the river we feed bread to the swans
And then over the footbridge to the woods beyond

We walk ourselves weary, you and I
There’s just this moment

I light a campfire away from the path
We lie in the bluebells, a woodpecker laughs

Time passes slowly our hearts entwined
All of the dark times left behind

The day is done
The sun sinks low
We fold up the blanket, it’s time to go

We walk ourselves weary, arm in arm
Back through the twilight
Home again

We waltz in the moonlight and the embers glow
So much behind us
Still far to go
