Keep your head up
And try to listen to your heart
Be kind always, no matter
We all grow up
And someday we'll say goodbye
So shine your light while you got one

Make the most of what you got
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head
Fill up your heart
And take your shot
Don't waste time tryin' to be something you're not

Once 'round
Just once
Take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
You fill up your head
Fill up your heart
Cause that's all we got
Don't waste time trying to be someone you're not

Through your window
Well that's one way to see the world
Step outside and look back into
Look and listen
You decide what to believe
So shine your light while you got one

Make the most of what you got
Don't waste time trying to be something you're not
Fill up your head
Fill up your heart and take your shot
Don't waste time trying to be someone you're not

That's not a star, that's a satellite
Steppin' out
Steppin' out

    MemoryBefore playing this song in the encore during the winter 2012 tour @ Barclays, Dave said this is a song you sing to your children and that it was his daughter's favorite song on the album. I instantly knew they were going to play Drunken Soldier because that's exactly what the song always meant to me. I had been playing this song to my daughter on a weekly basis since AFTW was released. We love to jam out to it in the car. Simple message with that nostalgic Pink Floyd vibe...brilliant.
