Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now theres 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!

... how I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found? The same old fears.
Wish you were here...

Maybe it's interesting for some of you ...

Barrett's 'extraordinary legacy'
Joe Boyd - one of the pivotal figures of the 1960s rock scene - offers his memories of Pink Floyd founding member Syd Barrett, who has died aged 60.

"I was in London in 1966, working for Electra Records, and I was also involved in an organisation called the London Free School, a radical attempt to help revolutionise west London.

That organisation ended up kick-starting the Notting Hill Carnival in 1966. But the carnival didn't raise any money, so there was an attempt to do so by putting on concerts at a church hall in Palace Square.

The key figure in the London Free School was Peter Jenner. He knew this group from Cambridge called Pink Floyd who were in London looking for work.

He convinced them to do a gig as a benefit concert as it would be good publicity for them.

It worked, it was great. They had this light show and they were really wonderful and original.

I got really excited about them and tried to interest the record company I was working for in signing them.

I couldn't get the boss to bite, and this was one of many things that led to my leaving the employment of Electra and setting out as a freelance producer. I set about trying to get a deal for the Pink Floyd.

By February 1967, I went into the studio with them to record a single, which we then hoped to sell to a record company.

We recorded Arnold Layne, which was a song written by Syd - at that time, he wrote or co-wrote everything that the Floyd performed and he was definitely the focus and the centrepiece of the Floyd. The record was then contracted to EMI.

Грустно очень. Пусть простят мое многословие те, которым "ничего не хочется говорить"...
Он никогда не был "слишком реальным". И все же очень грустно оттого, что ушло еще одно лицо эпохи - эпохи, которую я так люблю. Он уже давно был не здесь. Точнее он никогда не был полностью здесь.
Чудак-дудочник, "seer of visions"... Человек, который... нет, не рассказал... просто заставил нас почувствовать нечто совершенно иное.

Nobody knows where you are
How near or how far...
