David Gilmour – In Any Tongue lyrics

Home and done, it's just begun
His heart weighs more
More than it ever did before
What has he done?
God help my son
Hey stay a while
I'll stay up
No sugar is enough
To bring sweetness to his cup
I know sorrow
Tastes the same on any tongue
Hey hey hey

How was I to feel it when a gun was in my hands?
And I waited for so long
How was I to see straight?
In the dust and blinding sun
Just a pair of boots on the ground

On the screen the young men die
The Children cry
In the rubble of their lives
What has he done?
God help my son
Hey stay a while
I'll stay up
The volume pumped right up
But not enough to drown it out
I hear mamma
Sounds the same in any tongue
Ooh ooh ooh

How am I to see you when my faith stands in the way?
And the wailing is long done
How am I to know you?
With a joystick in my hand
When the call to arms has come.

Solo outro
