Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel

Solsbury Hill
door Peter Gabriel 

Climbing up on Solsbury Hill 
I could see the city light 
Wind was blowing, time stood still 
Eagle flew out of the night 
He was something to observe 
Came in close, I heard a voice 
Standing stretching every nerve 
Had to listen had no choice 
I did not believe the information 
I just had to trust imagination 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Son," he said "Grab your things, 
I've come to take you home." 

To keep in silence I resigned 
My friends would think I was a nut 
Turning water into wine 
Open doors would soon be shut 
So I went from day to day 
Tho' my life was in a rut 
"Till I thought of what I'd say 
Which connection I should cut 
I was feeling part of the scenery 
I walked right out of the machinery 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Hey" he said "Grab your things 
I've come to take you home." 
(Back home.) 

When illusion spin her net 
I'm never where I want to be 
And liberty she pirouette 
When I think that I am free 
Watched by empty silhouettes 
Who close their eyes but still can see 
No one taught them etiquette 
I will show another me 
Today I don't need a replacement 
I'll tell them what the smile on my face meant 
My heart going boom boom boom 
"Hey" I said "You can keep my things, 
They've come to take me home." [endtext]
