Clawfinger – Shine On You Crazy Diamond lyrics

Remember when you were young,
You shone like the sun
Shine on you crazy diamond
Now there's a look in your eyes,
Like black holes in the sky
Shine on you crazy diamond
You were caught on the crossfire
Of childhood and stardom,
Blown on the steel breeze
Come on, you target
For faraway laughter
Come on you stranger
You legend, you martyr, and shine!
You reached for the secret too soon
You cried for the moon
Shine on you crazy diamond
Threatened by shadows at night
And exposed in the light
Shine on you crazy diamond
Well, you wore out your welcome
With random precision
Rode on the steel breeze
Come on, you raver,
You seer of visions,
Come on, you painter,
You piper, you prisoner, and shine!
Nobody knows where you are,
How near or how far
Shine on you crazy diamond
Pile on many more layers
And I'll be joining you there
Shine on you crazy diamond
And we'll bask in the shadow
Of yesterday's triumph,
Sail on the steel breeze
Come on, you boy child,
You winner and loser,
Come on, you miner
For truth and delusion, and shine!
