On The Turning Away

Song Author David Gilmour Lyrics by: Anthony Moore Performer: Pink Floyd Submitted by: Anonymous
[Em]On the t[D]urning aw[G]ay  
From the p[C]ale and downtr[Em]odden
And the w[D]ords they s[G]ay  
Which we w[C]on't understand
"D[Em]on't accept that what's h[C]appen[G]ing  
[Em]Is just a case of all the s[G]uffer[C]ing  
[G]Or you'll find that you're j[C]oining [Em]in   
The t[D]urning aw[G]ay"  

[Em]It's a s[D]in that someh[G]ow  
Light is ch[C]anging to sh[Em]adow   
And c[D]asting it's shr[G]oud  
Over [C]all we have known
[Em]Unaware how the r[C]anks have gr[G]own  
Dr[Em]iven on by a h[G]eart of st[C]one  
W[G]e could find that we're [C]all al[Em]one   
In the dr[D]eam of the pr[G]oud  

[Em]On the w[D]ings of the n[G]ight
As the d[C]aytime is st[Em]irring
Where the sp[D]eechless un[G]ite  
In a s[C]ilent accord
[Em]Using words you will f[C]ind are str[G]ange
And m[Em]esmerised as they l[G]ight the fl[C]ame  
F[G]eel the new wind of ch[C]ange
[Em]On the w[D]ings of the n[G]ight

N[Em]o more t[D]urning aw[G]ay  
From the w[C]eak and the w[Em]eary   
No more t[D]urning aw[G]ay  
From the c[C]oldness inside
J[Em]ust aworld that we [C]all must sh[G]are  
[Em]It's not enough just to st[G]and and sta[C]re  
[G]Is it only a dr[C]eam that there'll b[Em]e   
No more t[D]urning aw[G]ay ?

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of all the suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known
Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord
Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerised as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary
No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just aworld that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare
Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away ?
