Deep Dive: Lost For Words by Pink Floyd 

Today’s episode is a “Deep Dive” on the song Lost For Words by Pink Floyd. Lost For Words was released in 1994 as a part of the Division Bell album. It was written by Pink Floyd’s singer and guitarist David Gilmour. This is one of my favorite songs of all time, and we’re going to really break it down. We’re going to be looking specifically at the lyrics, form, and instrumentation of the song.
