"Louder Than Words" as written by and David Jon Gilmour Polly Anne Samson....
We bitch and we fight
Diss each other on sight
But this thing we do
These times together
Rain or shine or stormy weather
This thing we do

With world-weary grace
We've taken our places
We could curse it or nurse it and give it a name

It's louder than words
This thing that we do
Louder than words
The way it unfurls
It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
Is louder than words
Louder than words

The strings bend and slide
As the hours glide by
An old pair of shoes, your favorite blues
Gonna tap out the rhythm
Let's go with the flow, wherever it goes
We're more than alive

It's louder than words
This thing that we do
Louder than words
The way it unfurls
It's louder than words
The sum of our parts
The beat of our hearts
Is louder than words
Louder than words

    General CommentThe whole album is a tribute to Richard Wright. His playing was at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound as Nick Mason said.
    I believe this song is about being Pink Floyd. This is exactly that thing they do and this feeling cannot be expressed by words. It's louder than words.
    This song i believe its the best way to end this beautiful journey of Pink Floyd.
    Richard Wright rest in peace...

    My InterpretationAlthough humans are not without faults, we comprise the most beautiful thing ever created, the endless river that we call life.

    My InterpretationIt's not only this song but the entire album is a metaphor! The Endless River is related to somewhat of Paradise. Louder Than Words was the struggles of Pink Floyd with Syd Barrett and fights.
