You don’t have to ask me twice!

I was going to put this somewhere else but since so much of it applies here as well I decided to put it here.

My youngest and I were chatting and bantering back and forth as we normally do and eventually the conversation went to music, again fairly common around here. He mentioned Pink Floyd …. okay, all ears!!

‘Everyone mentions Dark Side of the Moon but I prefer The Wall’ he says. What’s your favourite?

‘Momentary Lapse of Reason’. I tell him

‘I’m not sure I know that one … can you wake me up with it tomorrow’?

…. Ummm, no need to ask me that one twice, you bet I can! ‘Consider it a done deal’!

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away from the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?

We must stand together, all of us, no matter where, no matter the lifestyle, no matter the dynamic …

On The Turning Away Lyrics

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say which we won’t understand
“Don’t accept that what’s happening
Is just a case of others’ suffering
Or you’ll find that you’re joining in
The turning away”

It’s a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting its shroud over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we’re all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite in a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
Mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away from the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It’s not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there’ll be
No more turning away?
