You will never walk alone...and I try climbing

image from -
"when you walk through a storm
hold your head up highand
don't be afraid of the dark
at the end of a storm is a golden sky
and the sweet silver song of a lark
walk on through the wind
walk on through the rain
tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
walk on, walk on
with hope in your heart
and you'll never walk alone
you'll never, walk alone..."
from Anfield road
Famous song of Liverpool Fans
_ _ _ _ _

you say the hill's too steep to climb
just climb it
you say you'd like to see me try
you pick the place and i'll choose the time
and i'll climb
the hill in my own way
just wait a while for the right day
and as i rise above the tree lines and the clouds
i look down
hear the sound of the things you said today
fearlessly, the idiot faced the crowd
merciless, the magistrate turns 'round
and who's the fool who wears the crown?
and go down in your own way
and every day is the right day
and as you rise above the fear-lines in his brow
you look down
hear the sound of the faces in the crowd
from "fearless", Pink Floyd, 1971
about song:
"Fearless" is the title of the third track on "Meddle" by Pink Floyd. The song's slow tempo and mellow acoustic sound bear similarities to some of the other tracks on the first side of the album. Roger Waters composed the ascending riff on guitar using an open tuning in G major that he learned from Syd Barrett (Barrett also seems to be the subject of some of the lyrics). He plays this riff and other rhythm guitar parts on the studio recording, despite his job as the band's usual bassist. [1]
Near the beginning and at the end of the song, a field recording of fans in Liverpool's Kop choir singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" is superimposed over the music. This Rodgers and Hammerstein song became the anthem of Liverpool F.C. after Gerry and the Pacemakers had a number-one hit with their recording. The fans repeatedly chant "Liverpool!" after the song's conclusion, and their cheering reverberates across the stereo field in a haunting manner, which produces a somewhat psychedelic effect on listeners with headphones." *
