Ripples Lyrics

Bluegirls come in every size
Some are wise and some otherwise,
They got pretty blue eyes.
For an hour a man may change
For an hour her face looks strange -
Looks strange, looks strange.

Marching to the promised land
Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand,
Pulls you down on your knees,
While you're down a pool appears.
The face in the water looks up,
And she shakes her head as if to say
That it's the last time you'll look like today.

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
Gone to the other side.
Sail away, away.

The face that launched a thousand ships
Is sinking fast, that happens you know,
The water gets below.
Seems not very long ago
Lovelier she was than any that I know.

Angels never know it's time
To close the book and gracefully decline,
The song has found a tale.
My, what a jealous pool is she.
The face in the water looks up
She shakes her head as if to say
That the bluegirls have all gone away.

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
They've gone to the other side.
Look into the pool,
Ripples never come back,
Dive to the bottom and go to the top
To see where they have gone
Oh, they've gone to the other side...

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
Gone to the other side.
Look into the pool,
The ripples never come back, come back,
Dive to the bottom and go to the top
To see where they have gone
They've gone to the other side
Ripples never come back
Sail away, away...

Zur Zeit mein absolutes Lieblingslied die live-version.So etwas tolles kann einfach nur Genesis.

...mit allen seinen Sinnen. Genesis sind keine Songs sondern eine Erfahrung. Dieses Stück aus der "Frühzeit" von Genesis zeigt zu welch großartiger Leistung diese Band schon damals fähig war... Großes Kino... oft kopiert... nie erreicht...

Tolles Lied - vor allem auf der DVD 'When in Rome' - die ist sowieso jedem Genesis Fan zu empfehlen. Gänsehaut pur...

Ich mag dieses Lied sehr. Schönes Kopfkino, wenn man sich die Szenen dazu vorstellt.

Gehört für mich musikalisch zu den schönsten Stücken von Genesis.
