"Coming Back to Life" is a song from Pink Floyd's 1994 album The Division Bell, and is credited solely to David Gilmour.

Composition

Gilmour has said (as can be heard on the David Gilmour in Concert DVD) that the song was written about his wife, Polly Samson.

The song is played in C major. It opens with a synth droning a C major chord, leading to a slow guitar solo played with a clean sound. The first verse is then sung slowly over synth chords, before the main rhythm of the song appears, and the rest of the band join the arrangement. Another verse is sung, and followed by a guitar solo. After this guitar solo, the last few lines of the verse are sung again, and then a guitar solo is played until the end of the song.[original research?]

Live performances

It was also featured on the 1995 live album, Pulse. The version on the audio release is from a show other than that which is on the video and DVD. David Gilmour's solo live versions are featured on his live DVDs David Gilmour in Concert and Remember That Night as well as on the third CD of the special edition of the Live in Gdańsk album.
