Today
David Gilmour

Today

(If you should wake and find me gone
Keep safe this night and dwell upon
Such murmurations, sun sunk deep
Now close your eyes and go to sleep)

What a day it's been a day of shoot the breezing
What a day it's been this time of year, oh yes
Just a day when the weight of the world slides away

Feel that sun on your back, see the shadows falling
Sea meets shore and shoothers it with a song, yes
If this should be my last day on earth I'll sing along

(Today, always) let's forget all the skies cast over and grey
(Today, always) and all the squalling tempest of doubt
(Today, always) holding on, clinging tight in the wreckage of love
(Today, always) but today

What a time to dream, what a day of easy
What a day it's been this time of year, oh yeah
Just a day when the weight of the world slides away

(Today, always) evening star, a guitar in the smoke of the fire
(Today, always) light of gold in the garden of old
(Today, always) I'll take it all again, if it came my way
(Today, always) but today
