Lyricist and writer Polly Samson wrote the lyrics to Pink Floyd’s new song Louder Than Words which appears on their forthcoming album The Endless River.
This is not the first time Polly has written lyrics for Pink Floyd as she also did an excellent job on The Division Bell and her husband David Gilmour’s solo album On An Island.
David Gilmour said “there is something magical about the music the three of us make together” and this song is about capturing that. Your humble narrator thinks Polly has done a great job with the lyrics.
You can have a listen to Pink Floyds new song The Endless River if you can’t wait for it to be released next month in multiple formats. Keep in mind it is the “radio edit” and not the “extended edit“. The extended edit has several lines more lyrics in which are highlighted in the lyrics below.
Pink Floyd Louder Than Words Lyrics
We bitch and we fight diss each other on sight but this thing we do… These times together rain or shine or stormy weather this thing we do… With world-weary grace we’ve taken our places we could curse it or nurse it and give it a name. Or stay home by the fire felled by desire, stoking the flame. But we’re here for the ride.
It’s louder than words this thing that we do louder than words the way it unfurls. It’s louder than words the sum of our parts the beat of our hearts is louder than words. Louder than words.
The strings bend and slide as the hours glide by an old pair of shoes your favorite blues gonna tap out the rhythm. Let’s go with the flow wherever it goes. We’re more than alive.
It’s louder than words this thing that we do louder than words the way it unfurls. It’s louder than words the sum of our parts the beat of our hearts is louder than words.
Louder than words this thing they call soul it’s there with a pulse louder than words. Louder than words.
It also contains a preview of the song Louder Than Words which the four part album slowly builds up to over 55 or so minutes. Gilmour also suggests that this is the final output from the band, Richard Wright’s tribute.
Some of you will be very eager to get a preview of the lyrics to Louder Than Words whereas others will not want to hear until they have the full album.
Louder Than Words has lyrics written by lyricist and writer Polly Samson, David Gilmour’s wife. She also wrote many of the words on The Division Bell and has published books too.
Roger Waters made it clear in a Facebook post the other day that he has absolutely nothing to do with the new Pink Floyd album and that people should stop asking him about it!
Roger said in his note, “Some people have been asking Laurie, my wife, about a new album I have coming out in November. Errhh? I don’t have an album coming out, they are probably confused. David Gilmour and Nick Mason have an album coming out. It’s called Endless River. David and Nick constitute the group Pink Floyd. I on the other hand, am not part of Pink Floyd. I left Pink Floyd in 1985, that’s 29 years ago. I had nothing to do with either of the Pink Floyd studio albums, Momentary Lapse of Reason and The Division Bell, nor the Pink Floyd tours of 1987 and 1994, and I have nothing to do with Endless River. Phew! This is not rocket science people, get a grip.”
