“High Hopes is the eleventh and final track from the Pink Floyd album The Division Bell, released 17 October 1994, composed by David Gilmour with lyrics by Gilmour and Polly Samson. Its lyrics speak of the things one may have gained and lost in life, written from Gilmour’s autobiographic perspective.” – Wiki.
A line in the lyrics got my attention recently. The last line of the following…
The grass was greener
The light was brighter
The taste was sweeter
The nights of wonder
With friends surrounded
The dawn mist glowing
The water flowing
The endless river
A hint of something to come in the future?
“The Endless River is the fifteenth and final studio album by the English rock band Pink Floyd. It was released by Parlophone and Columbia in Friday-release countries on 7 November 2014, and in the United Kingdom and United States on 10 November 2014. It is the third Pink Floyd album led by guitarist and singer David Gilmour following Roger Waters‘ departure in 1985, and the first following the death of keyboardist Rick Wright in 2008, who appears posthumously.” – Wiki.
“David Jon Gilmour, CBE (born 6 March 1946) is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968, effectively as a replacement for founder Syd Barrett, who left the band shortly afterwards.” – Wiki.
I was born 5 March 1956. I became a fan of Pink Floyd at age 18 in 1974.
