Breathe Reprise Lyrics – Pink Floyd – Dark Side of the Moon
Home, home again.
I like to be here when I can.
When I come home cold and tired
It’s good to warm my bones beside the fire.
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.

About The Song
“Breathe (Reprise)” is not officially listed as a separate track on Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon” but is recognized by listeners as the reiteration of the album’s opening song, “Breathe,” and occurs towards the end of the suite “Time.” This reprise serves to remind listeners of the album’s recurring themes of the pressures of life and the passage of time.
“Breathe (Reprise)” subtly reemerges on Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon,” weaving back the album’s initial themes into the narrative during the closing moments of “Time.” It serves as a reflective counterpart to the opening track “Breathe,” creating a bookend effect that punctuates the album’s exploration of life’s relentless march forward.
The reprise captures the ethereal quality of the original, with David Gilmour’s haunting guitar lines and the soft, floating organ sounds. The lyrics are a condensed echo of “Breathe,” reminding listeners of the cyclical nature of life and the advice to “breathe, just breathe,” amidst the complexities and demands of the everyday.
While short and often seen as part of “Time,” this reprise is a poignant reminder of the album’s core message, emphasizing the need for moments of peace and introspection in a busy world. In the grand tapestry of “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Breathe (Reprise)” is a crucial thread, highlighting the album’s thematic coherence and the band’s attention to conceptual continuity.
