Saturday Jukebox: Time

Saturday Jukebox

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

Maybe my favorite Pink Floyd song.

Skip to 2.13 for lyrics.

You know, that long ass intro does kind of throw you off…especially if you’re stoned. You get wrapped up in that trippy clock ticking sound and lose track of time, almost falling asleep, then all of a sudden the vocals come on and you jerk awake thinking, “Oh fuck, when did this happen and how long has it been?” Which, if you think about it, is basically what the song’s all about.
