Love on the Air – The Song by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd

david gilmore, love on the air by david gilmore

This song has meant so much to me over the years. David Gilmour, the guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd, released a monster solo album called About Face. And while there are other great hits on that record, this song always spoke to me as I traveled my life, in and out of relationships. Today, as I was driving to work, this song played from my Spotify playlist for the TV show I’m working on. The name for the podcast was obvious.

Here are David’s amazing lyrics, followed by a YouTube video of the song that spawned this podcast.

Love on the Air

Love on the air
I keep transmitting
but reception is hazy
I don’t get an answer
Keep sending it faster
Always knew it was crazy

To put my love on the air

No one will hurt me again
No one will cause me to lie
No one control me by pain
No one will cause me to cry

I was looking for love
In wandering eyes
Like a ship trying to fix on a beacon
I learned how to sigh
On the ribbon and wires
It’s a habit that’s so hard to weaken

I put my love on the air

No one will ever manipulate
Make me promise to do or die
No one can make me hesitate
What can I lose if they try

I was looking for love
Like the very first time
Didn’t realize love never left me
Contradicted – conspired
I connived and designed
Nothing on earth could arrest me.

Reception is hazy
When you put your love on the air
Always knew it was crazy
To put my love on the air
But I only communicate
When I put my love on the air
You don’t have to consummate
Love on the air
