"Crying Song" as written by and Waters....
We smile and smile
We smile and smile
Laughter echoes in your eyes

We climb and climb
We climb and climb
Footfalls softly in the pines

We cry and cry
We cry and cry
Sadness passes in a while

We roll and roll
We roll and roll
Help me roll away the stone

    General CommentThe fade-in and fade-out to this song might actually be better than the "meat" of the song, if you know what I mean. Classic early Floyd slow song. The song is obviously about ups and downs, life! Summed up very short and sweet in Waters' tradmark "list" style of writing. One of my favorite early Floyd tunes

    General CommentAnd in the end, it's almost a love song, as the last line suggests that you can't get through life alone.

    General CommentFirst Waters reference to a "stone," which automatically makes not, whether or not it's a great song (which it is), a historical curiousity and a must have.

    It is about, as Loafer kindly said three times, the ups and downs of life.

    General CommentI agree that the fade in and fade out is what is really special about this one. Stone reference really is the only reason someone would analyse this piece, having not indulged in this sort of music with curiosity before hand. I like it

    General CommentWhat is the "stone" meaning? a problem maybe, but is that means something else?
