Testo ripples - genesis

Bluegirls come in every size

some are wise and some otherwise

They've got pretty blue eyes

For an hour a man may change

For an hour her face looks strange

Looks strange
looks strange



Marching through 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

And she shakes her head as if to say

That the bluegirls have all gone away



Sail away
away

Ripples never come back

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
