Testo undertow - genesis

The curtains are drawn

Now the fire warms the room.

Meanwhile outside

Wind from the north-east chills the air

It will soon be snowing out there.

And some thete are

they prepare for a sleepless night.

Maybe this will be their last fight.

But we're safe in each other's embrace

All fears go out as I look on your face-

Better think awhile

Or I may never think again.

If this were the last day of your life
my friend

Tell me
what do you think you would do then?

Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you

Make the most of all you still have coming to you

Lay down on the ground and let the tears run from you

Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally on your knees

Let me live again
let life come find me wanting.

Spring must strike again against the shield of winter.

Let me feel once more the arms of love surround me

Telling me the danger's past
I need not fear the icy blast again.

music and perfume linger here

And there
and there

Wine flows from flask to glass and mouth

As it soothes
confusing our doubts.

And soon we feel

Why do a single thing to-day

There's tomorrow sure as I'm here.

So the days they turn into years

And still no tomorrow appears.

Better think awhile etc
