"The Blue" as written by and David Gilmour Polly Samson....
Shameless sea
Aimlessly so blue
Midnight-moon shines for you

Still, marooned
Silence drifting through
Nowhere to choose
Just blue...

Star-crossed you and me
Save our souls
We'll be forever blue

Waves roll
Lift us in blue
Drift us
Seep right through
And colour us blue

Wait for me
Shameless you, the sea
Soon, the Blue
So soon...

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship that never got the chance to succeed ("star-crossed, you and me"); a relationship in which both of the participants have moved-on with their lives but both have always truly wished they were able to be together... their love and desire for each other is always in the background and it can't blossom and flourish because of their circumstances, so they will be "forever blue"... "wait for me" might mean that both secretly they wish for some change, perhaps the afterlife, that will allow them to be together.

    General CommentApparently this is about mortality..a sort of acquatic version of ashes to ashes/dust to dust.

    General CommentThis song conjures up images and memories of my youth: sitting on the grassy dune with my surfboard in front of me, watching the surf, watching the tide, counting sets and waves and timing their intervals, studying where the rips are forming and dying, visualising the shape of the sand banks by the way the waves break with the swell direction. Blue sky above, blue water beyond.
    Sitting there with all the time in the world, relaxed, non-stressed, enjoying being 15, taking in my surroundings.
