Fallece Richard Wright de Pink Floyd

El pasado lunes murió de cáncer a los 65 años Richard Wright, miembro fundador y teclista de Pink Floyd.

Aunque no tan prolífico como Waters y Gilmour, Wright aportó su granito de arena en la composición de bastantes de las canciones del grupo, entre ellas Time del genial The Dark Side of the Moon. ¿Quién no ha tenido alguna vez la sensación, echando la vista atrás, de haber estado perdiendo el tiempo, haber esperado años a que algo pasara o pusiera en marcha ciertos acontecimientos en lugar de habernos levantado del sillón y habernos puesto en marcha nosotros?

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way.
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you’re older,
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

Every year is getting shorter never seem to find the time.
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over,
Thought I’d something more to say.
