On The Turning Away

Pink Floyd


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

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

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

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