about

My second Pink Floyd cover version following Julia Dream in 2019. Eventually I’d like to do a whole album of trip-hop Pink Floyd covers. I hope I’ve done justice to this iconic song (or at least not completely destroyed it in the eyes of Pink Floyd fans!) I originally sang lead vocals but I fired myself after finding singer, Yin.

lyrics

Little by little the night turns around
Counting the leaves which tremble at dawn
Lotuses lean on each other in yearning
Under the eaves the swallow is resting

Set the controls for the heart of the sun
Over the mountain watching the watcher
Breaking the darkness waking the grapevine
One inch of love is one inch of shadow
Love is the shadow that ripens the wine


Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Witness the man who raves at the wall
Making the shape of his questions to Heaven
Whether the Sun will fall in the evening
Will he remember the lesson of giving?

Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun
