"Childhood's End" is a song from Pink Floyd's 1972 album Obscured by Clouds.[1][2] It was the last Pink Floyd song to feature lyrics by David Gilmour or to be composed entirely solo by him, until the album A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

"Childhood's End" was performed live during the band's European tour in late 1972 and at a few shows in March, 1973 on their next North American tour. The live versions usually featured a fairly long instrumental section not found in the studio version, with an exception being the last version played on March 10, 1973 at Kent State University, when they stuck to the studio arrangement.
