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

Cold
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
or

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.



Laughter
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
