Syd Barrett

Oh where are you now
Pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone you promised a stone from your heart
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
Please, please lift a hand
I’m only a person whose armbands beat
On his hands, hang tall
Won’t you miss me?
Wouldn’t you miss me at all?

The poppy birds way
Swing twigs coffee brands around
Brandish her wand with a feathery tong
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
Please, please, please lift a hand
I’m only a person with Eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way
Won’t you miss me?
Wouldn’t you miss me at all?
