    I'd pay good money for a full Album of David and Romany, it only needs to be him on acoustic and her on the harp both singing. This song is really good I like the lyrics as well, hope it gets released in stereo at some point. Honestly it would be an amazing album. They sing so well together.

    Man, this song is really boring. One of his worst imo.

    Hell, I've talked to multiple people about this song, and they hate it too. Shame.
    Concerts:

    Roger Waters - Philadelphia, 2017.

    Ozzy Osbourne - Camden, NJ, 2018.

    "Yes I Have Ghosts": the melody is very beautiful and the arrangements are very good. Maybe it's because of David Gilmour's melody or broken voice, but it reminds me a lot of Leonard Cohen (this is the first time I think about it for a Gilmour song (and because Gilmour's voice - perhaps it's emphasize by the lady's voice harmonies) (whereas we would rather tend to think about it while listening to certain Floydian songs sung by Waters (Grantchester Meadows and his "Suzanne" debut). The musical bridge is superb.
    Without being able to put my finger on what song it reminds me of, I must say that the finale with just the trembling acoustic guitar of bends and tremolos by Gilmour is absolutely sublime; when it is then joined by the other instruments (well, I was thinking about the guitar solo of "Fat Old Sun", but as an acoustic variation)

    I agree! She has an amazing voice! And they suit each other really well.
    It's a beautifully haunting song imh and would work very well on an album with a variation of quiet and more rocking songs.

    Weird some of the reactions here to the song some of it sounds like trolling to be honest, it is better than anything off of Rattle that lock and as good as the best stuff from On an Island. Please just give me an entire Album of him and Romany playing music like this.

    I bashed it before I heard it.
    I heard it once and didn’t care for it.
    I gave it another listen, made me weep. I actually listened to the lyrics and the chorus is beautiful and made more poignant when its Romany and David harmonizing together. Im not exactly sure how it fits into the context of the book but as a song the theme I can relate to. Very sad.
