Something's gotta give
We can't carry on like this
One year on and more unsure
Where do we go from here?
Many nights and many days
I've spent with you
Talking about what we should do
I can't say
Nothing's clear to me no more

One more sleepless night
And another wasted day
This song has no end
Too many words fill my mind
You gave so much too soon
No longer sure where you want to be
Turn around
See what you have found

Let's drink to absent friends
How they cared, and all they shared
We took our life to the edge
They still try to understand
Time is running out
You're going down
Come on, let's go wherever they may be
Make a choice
Stay behind or follow me

    General CommentI love Rick Wright and im only realizing now that i haven't commented on his music.

    This is probably my favorite Rick Wright song, I think its about the point in a friendship where your decision is stay together or part and hes saying
    "Make a choice, Stay behind or follow me "
    i also love the music here, you can hear the floyd sound. Wright dserves a lot more credit for all of his solo work.

    General CommentStay behind or follow me (seem like the same thing to me).

    Not much of a choice.
