Promise me!

Now I know why this song is my absolute favourite.It's not because of my childhood memories that have been pent up within its melodies....not because of the deep,thirsty voice of David Gilmour,the sound of the bells that move my soul or the mystrious lyrics(for I love mysteries). voice that are so dear!! Sing to me...
"Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
In a world of magnets and miracles
Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
The ringing of the division bell had begun
Along the Long Road and on down the Causeway
Do they still meet there by the Cut?
There was a ragged band that followed in our footsteps
Running before time took our dreams away
Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
To a life consumed by slow decay
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
With friends surrounded
The nights of wonder
Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide
At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world
Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Though down this road we've been so many times
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river
Forever and ever"
This is always the way I feel when I have to leave people I love,when my life rapidly changes by the change of faces and's like you have left a little bit of your heart with each and every one you love and then you go home not finding enough strength to go on....!!
But forgive me,Gilmour,for I'll fight the force of the inner tide that sleepwalks me away from my friends and colleagues.Even if this world is consumed by slow decay,I prefer it than a world where I can't see those lovely faces ever more!The faces that made my grass greener and the light brighter in my eyes,in my life....
يا أصحابى وزمايلى و حبايبى,
حاسة إن حياتى حيبقى مالهاش معنى من غير ما أشوفكوا كل يوم زى ما إتعودت بقى لى أربع سنين...يا لو الزمن يرجع تانى و آخدكم بالحضن و أقضى معاكوا كل الوقت اللى عايزاه!أنا قضيت معاكوا أجمل سنين عمرى,بس صداقتنا و حبنا لبعض مش حيضيع بمرور الوقت...وعدتكم فاوعدونى!
