Your Possible Pasts

Song Author Roger Waters Lyrics by: Roger Waters Performer: Pink Floyd Submitted by: Anonymous
They [G]flutter behind you your possible pa[Am]sts,   
Some [C]brighteyed and crazy,
some [D]frightened and [G]lost.
A [G]warning to anyone still in comm[Am]and   
[C]Of their possible [D]future, to take [G]care.
In [G]derelict sidings the poppies entwi[Am]ne   
With [C]cattle trucks lying in [D]wait for the next [G]time.
[Em]Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we shoud be [D]closer?

She [G]stood in the doorway, the ghost of a smi[Am]le   
[C]Haunting her face like a [D]cheap hotel [G]sign.
Her [G]cold eyes imploring the men in their m[Am]acs   
For the [C]gold in their bags or the [D]knives in their [G]backs.
[G]Stepping up boldly one put out his h[Am]and.   
He said, "[C]I was just a child then[D], now I'm only a [G]man."
[Em]Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we should be [D]closer?

[Em]    [C]    [Em]    [C]    [Em]    [D]    [C]    [D]    [Cmaj9]    
By the [G]cold and religious we were taken in h[Am]and   
Shown [C]how to feel good and [D]told to feel [G]bad.
[G]Strung out behind us the banners and fl[Am]ags   
Of our [C]possible pasts lie in [D]tatters and [G]rags.
[Em]Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we should be [D]closer?

They flutter behind you your possible pasts,
Some brighteyed and crazy,
some frightened and lost.
A warning to anyone still in command
Of their possible future, to take care.
In derelict sidings the poppies entwine
With cattle trucks lying in wait for the next time.
Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we shoud be closer?

She stood in the doorway, the ghost of a smile
Haunting her face like a cheap hotel sign.
Her cold eyes imploring the men in their macs
For the gold in their bags or the knives in their backs.
Stepping up boldly one put out his hand.
He said, "I was just a child then, now I'm only a man."
Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we should be closer?


By the cold and religious we were taken in hand
Shown how to feel good and told to feel bad.
Strung out behind us the banners and flags
Of our possible pasts lie in tatters and rags.
Do you remember me, how we used to be,
Do you think we should be closer?
